Dr. Jin Wang and I, the Guest Editors of the open access journal Processes
(ISSN 2227-9717; indexed in *SCIE* and *Scopus*;, are inviting you to publish a paper
to a Special Issue of Processes: Big Data in Biology, Life Sciences and

Deadline for submissions: *31 May 2019*

*Special Issue Description *

Massive quantities of data are being generated in biology, the life
sciences and healthcare industries and institutions, which hold the promise
of advancing our understandings of various biological systems and diseases,
developing new biocatalysts and drugs, as well as delivering more effective
patient care and reducing costs, etc. In this Special Issue, we seek
research and case studies that demonstrate the application of big data
modeling and analysis to support scientific research, drug development,
clinical decision making, personalized medicine, and other critical tasks.
Example topics include (but are not limited to) the following topics
relating big data to biology, the life sciences or healthcare:
Novel systems engineering approaches, including modeling and
numerical analysis algorithms
New statistical tools and algorithms
Machine learning and artificial intelligence
Integration of systems engineering approaches with machine learning
Novel visualization approaches
Computer or model-aided diagnostics
Model-based drug development
Evidence-based medicine
Modeling and analysis of data from a multitude of sources
Application of wearable devices
Public health surveillance
