    Caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the pandemic of
    coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has spread to more than 218 countries and territories and
    led to over 254 million confirmed cases and over 5.1 million fatalities by the end of 2021. Gigantic
    computational and mathematical studies have been conducted in biophysics and biochemical to
    accelerate COVID-19 research on SARS-CoV-2 virus evolution, virus infectivity, mutation impacts in
    vaccine/antibody escape, therapeutic medicine, rational drug discovery, drug repurposing, vaccine
    design, antibody therapy design, etc. To provide a fast publication channel for such studies, the
    journal Computational and Mathematical Biophysics (CMB) will publish a special issue on SARS-CoV-2 sequence and structure-based analysis in drug discovery and virus evolution”. This special
    issue will also focus on the recent development of computational and data science modeling
    techniques with reference to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Potential topics of this special include, but are not limited to:
    ·    Drug discovery, repurposing, protein-protein interaction networks
    ·    Analysis of cell-type deconvolution, gene regulatory networks
    ·    Virus evolution mechanism, mutations, natural selection
    ·    Mutation impacts on vaccine breakthroughs, antibody therapies
    ·    Drug design, delivery, and vaccine design
    ·    Mathematical and machine learning modeling, scoring functions
    ·    Molecular dynamics, molecular docking

    Important Dates
    Manuscript due: August 31, 2022
    Anticipated publication date: December 31, 2022
