The International Journal of Biotechnology Research is a peer-reviewed journal. The journal publishes original scientific articles, reviews and short communications that are not under consideration for publication elsewhere.It covers from molecular biology and the chemistry of biological process, as well as computational applications. In this regard, the complex functioning of biological processes is often the outcome of several molecular processes. Understanding such processes is crucial for discovering and characterizing complex biological mechanisms. It may also require, together with careful and detailed experimental protocols, a variety of computational approaches drawn from systems biology, bioinformatics, and molecular simulations. Models (if properly validated against experimental data) may provide insights into themechanistic details of biomolecular processes. Computational methods may allow to access features often difficult to be observed experimentally. Hence, there is a continuous need of improvements in algorithms and strategies to bolster the predictive power of computations.
