researchers to submit their best papers to JBiSE, the journal that publishes the highest quality of research and review
articles in all important aspects of biology, medicine, engineering, and their intersection.
We would also like to take this opportunity to announce that, owing to the large number of manuscripts that we are
receiving, JBiSE will increase publication frequency from quarterly to bi-monthly in 2009.
