Dear CAST10 community members,

Apologies for re-posting this message due to format issues in the previous 
post...

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

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
