Aims & scope


The goal of this journal is to promote basic and applied in silico research at both cellullar and tissue level that integrates the expanding knowledge in the fields of biology and engineering and their interplay. Approaches are predominantly silico based, but can also involve experimental contributions assessing the foundations of cellular and tissue phenomena. Contributions on the nano, micro, and/or macrolevels are welcome. In particular, contributions are appreciated that

  • quantify the physical, biological and chemical environment in which cells and tissues behave and function in healthy conditions and pathological conditions,
  • describe and quantify cellular and tissue responses under different environmental conditions and stimulations either from mechanical, chemical or other biophysical origins,
  • determine and scrutinize relations between chemical, physical, mechanical and biological processes such as cell growth, division, differentiation, death, migration and tissue growth, remodeling, repair or decay.

Especially encouraged are analytical and computational models based on physico-biological principles such as solid--viscous mechanics, fluid mechanics, poro-elasticity or cell biology, and their interactions as well as topics on new mathematical methods that facilitate analysis of biological systems in both cell, colony and tissue scales.
