The emergence and development of computational technology and informatics innovates and complements the research approaches used in the classical molecular biology. Massively parallel signature sequencing approaches, especially genome-wide approaches, become the mainstream experimental approaches, which have generated a large number of biological data. Computational molecular biology is an integration of experimental molecular and genome biology with computational technology. The newly launching journal, Computational Molecular Biology (ISSN 1927-5587) provides a platform for the community in computational molecular and genome biology to disseminate new discoveries in this interdisciplinary field to meet new challenges including raw molecular data generation, data analysis, comparative and evolutionary genomics, and applications of biotechnology by applying the power of computational technology.
