This is to announce a call for papers for for a special issue in the journal "Algorithmica" 
(published by Springer-Verlag) on 
"Algorithmic Problems for processing Protein Structures, Protein Sequences and Protein Networks".

Guest Editors: Piotr Berman, Bhaskar DasGupta, Jie Liang

Submission Deadline for the special issue: March 1, 2006 

Manuscripts are solicited for a volume of "Algorithmica"  
on topics concerning the development and analysis of new algorithmic
techniques for processing protein sequences, structures and networks. 
Algorithmica is an international journal which publishes original papers on algorithms 
with mathematically proven performance.
The thorough refereeing of the papers in this series will follow the
general procedure and standards of refereeing in the journal.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of possible topics of interest
for the special issue:

Protein sequence design 
Protein structure prediction
Protein function prediction
Protein folding
Protein Networks
Evolution of protein sequences or structures
Protein subsequence or substructure comparisons

We are explicitly soliciting papers that 
  * emphasize algorithmic methodologies, 
  * are directly relevant to or inspired by their applications in the above areas

The Guest Editors assure a thorough and timely refereeing process.
