Call For Papers

In 1951 Alan Turing wrote a paper entitled "The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis" in which he developed the reaction‐diffusion theory, which became one of the basic models of theoretical biology and is also considered a foundation of chaos theory.

The story started much earlier, in spring 1923, as documented by his mother in a caricature "Hockey or Watching the Daisies Grow". Crucial motif in the drawing is that, while most players are engaged by the game, Alan is investigating a flower emerging just off the field.

In his "Outline of the Development of a Daisy," Turing writes: "At a certain point in the development of the daisy the anatomical changes begin. From this point, as has been mentioned, it becomes hopelessly impracticable to follow the process mathematically...."

To celebrate the centenary of Turing's birth Fundamenta Informaticae will publish a special issue to highlight recent work in mathematical biology and bioinformatics. All papers that try to "follow the process mathematically" are welcome.

Relevant topics for the special issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
‐ Morphogenesis and pattern formation,
‐ Population dynamics,
‐ Mathematical oncology,
‐ Computational proteomics,
‐ Gene regulation,
‐ Genome analysis,
‐ Molecular evolution,
‐ Population genomics,
‐ Sequence analysis,
‐ Systems biology

Submission of Papers
We welcome original, unpublished high quality contributions in the field of biomathematics and bioinformatics, addressing one or more of the elements mentioned. All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted via the journal's online submission and peer‐review systems at:
Please follow the instructions given on that site.

The journal Fundamenta Informaticae is indexed in the Science Citation Index and has an Impact Factor of 0,615 (JCR '09)
