Call for Paper

Papers in all areas related to studies that are ultimately devoted to the computational understanding of biological systems on a molecular basis will be considered.

TBC does not publish conference proceedings. Instead, all accepted papers by TBC2018 will be published in a series of special issues of the follow journals:

  • ● BMC Genomics
  • ● BMC Medical Genomics
  • ● Frontiers in Genetics

Papers must not have been previously published and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format. All papers should be submitted at If you do not have an EasyChair account, please create an account here.

In general, you should use the template of the journal whose preferred themes are closest to that in your study.
