Dear colleagues and friends,

The deadline for the Special Issue of Processes, "Big Data in Biology, Life Sciences and Healthcare", has been extended to July 15th 2019. (

*Special Issue Description *

Massive quantities of data are being generated in the biology, life sciences and healthcare industries and institutions, which hold the promise of advancing our understandings of various biological systems and diseases, developing new biocatalyst 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 for supporting scientific research, drug development, clinical decision making, personalized medicine, and other critical tasks. Example topics include (but not limited to) the following topics relating big data to biology, 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

*How to Submit*
