The NETWORK BIOLOGY (ISSN 2220-8879; CODEN NBEICS) is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal that considers scientific articles in all different areas of network biology. It is the transactions of the International Society of Network Biology.It dedicates to the latest advances in network biology. The goal of this journal is to keep a record of the state-of-the-art research and promote the research work in these fast moving areas. The topics to be covered by Network Biology include, but are not limited to:
Theories, algorithms and programs of network analysis
Innovations and applications of biological networks
Ecological networks, food webs and natural equilibrium
Co-evolution, co-extinction, biodiversity conservation
Metabolic networks, protein-protein interaction networks, biochemical reaction networks, gene networks, transcriptional regulatory networks, cell cycle networks, phylogenetic networks, network motifs
Network regulation of metabolic processes, human diseases and ecological systems
Social networks, epidemiological networks
System complexity, self-organized systems, emergence of biological systems, agent-based modeling, individual-based modeling, neural network modeling, and other network-based modeling, etc.
We are also interested in short communications that clearly address a specific issue or completely present a new ecological network, food web, or metabolic or gene network, etc.
