Dear Colleague,

I am writing to tell you about a new journal specializing in molecular biology
and biotechnology.You may be interested in submitting full length papers on new 
programs or software, or a review of existing software. These papers are 
subject to peer review and will be assessed on merit.

Review papers are particularly welcome, for example: comparative evaluations 
of different packages,  comparisons of individual programs for specific uses, 
descriptions of networks,databases, etc. Questions that should be addressed 
include: What are they? What do they do? Where do you get hold of them? How do 
you use them? When writing your paper bear in mind that the readership consists 
of molecular biologists and biotechnologists who are not generally computer 

Instructions for authors are available.

The journal also has a section entitled SOFTWARE UPDATE which will feature new 
(or updated) programs and software packages (both commercial and public domain) 
of interest to the molecular biologist; also updates on networks, databases, 
etc. If you have any information which you would like us to consider for this 
section please send two copies of your submission to me at the above address. 
Your contribution should be concise yet informative...aim at 100 - 200
words. The purpose is to inform the reader of the existence of the 
software and provide a brief summary, a reference can also be given if a full 
description has already been published. Notes on new database releases, 
networks, etc are welcome. If possible include a FAX number and E-mail address 
so that readers can contact you directly. Updates to existing programs and 
databases should also be publicized here.

General information about the journal (including a sample copy) can be obtained
from Humana Press, 999 Riverview Dr., Suite 208, Totowa, NJ 07512. 
FAX 201-256 8341. The first issue will be published in February.

Yours sincerely,

Dr. Hugh Griffin.
