Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Knowledge Discovery in Bioinformatics (IJKDB) is to increase awareness of interesting and challenging biomedical problems and to inspire new knowledge discovery solutions, which can be translated into further biological and clinical studies. IJKDB is aimed at researchers in the areas of bioinformatics, knowledge discovery, machine learning, and data structure, as well as practitioners in the life sciences industry. In addition to original research papers in bioinformatics, this journal emphasizes software and tools that exploit the knowledge discovery techniques to address biological problems and databases that contain useful biomedical data generated in wet and dry labs. IJKDB encompasses discovery notes that report newly found biological discoveries using computational techniques and includes reviews and tutorials on relevant computational and experimental techniques for translational research and knowledge discovery in life sciences.
