The purpose of the 2nd Zing Conference on Mathematical and Computational Medicine is to bring together eminent scholars with expertise in various fields of mathematical and computational medicine, as well as experimentalists and medical doctors interested in application of computational methods in clinical studies. The mathematical and computational medicine is now one of the most important and rapidly growing fields of modern medicine, and will become even more important in near future, when the cost of individual human gene sequencing becomes affordable for mass-scale clinical use (The $1000 Human Genome). New sequencing techniques, such as RNA-Seq produce enormous amount of information on the transcriptome in healthy and diseased cells, that need a development of new mathematical and computational methods to extract the most important medical information. The scope of the proposed Zing Conference will cover many different fields mathematical and computational medicine and biomedical informatics, such as genetics, genomics, epigenetics, and epigenomics of various diseases including mental and learning disorders, autism, and somatic diseases, with a special emphasis on cancer, protein misfolding disorders related to amyloid formation in neurogenerative diseases (such as Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease), gene regulation, biomarker development, computer aided drug development, computational pharmacodynamics, computational immunology, systems biology and its extension to systems medicine, machine learning methods in application to biomedical data, applicability of computational methods in personalized medicine, and regenerative medicine.

Computational and Structural Biotechnology Journal (CSBJ) is an online journal publishing research articles and reviews after full peer review (ISSN 2001-0370). CSBJ is affiliated with the International Chemical Biology Society & Hellenic Society for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. All articles are published, without barriers to access, immediately upon acceptance. The journal places a strong emphasis on functional and mechanistic understanding of how molecular components in a biological process work together through the application of computational methods. Structural data may provide such insights, but they are not a pre-requisite for publication in the journal. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Structure and function of proteins, nucleic acids and other macromolecules • Structure and function of multi-component complexes • Protein folding, processing and degradation • Enzymology • Computational and structural studies of plant systems • Microbial Informatics • Genomics • Proteomics • Metabolomics • Algorithms and Hypothesis in Bioinformatics • Mathematical and Theoretical Biology • Computational Chemistry & Drug Discovery • Microscopy and Molecular Imaging • Nanotechnology • Systems & Synthetic Biology

The journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence, and enables the rapid publication of papers under the following categories:

• Research articles • Review articles • Mini Reviews • Highlights • Communications • Software/Web server articles • Methods articles • Database articles • Book Reviews • Meeting Reviews
