MCBIOS 2008 Proceedings

BMC Bioinformatics is indexed by PubMed, MEDLINE, BIOSIS, CAS, Scopus, EMBASE, Thomson Scientific (ISI) and Google Scholar. Because BMC Bioinformatics is an online journal, there are no charges for extra pages or color pictures. In fact, they encourage authors to take advantage of the ability to publish multimedia images, animations and other files that would not be possible in print-only journals.

BMC Bioinformatics offers the additional advantage that all articles are open-access and will appear online shortly after final editing of proofs.
