About the book

In recent years biology, chemistry and computer sciences have become more and more interconnected, which has led to incredible promise. Furthermore an association between Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics, Genetics and Computer sciences supports the progression of applicable software, databases and methodologies. The creation of hi-tech diagnostic tools including next generation sequencing helps us to have precise detection and recognition. Simultaneously, production of advanced software and computational technologies enables us to have an accurate illustration of spatial structure of different molecules. The three dimensional docking, modeling and illustration of molecules reveal the reality of the nature and life. In this book we are going to discuss different aspects of the computational biology and chemistry.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Ketrin Polesak

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
