The series is designed for experts who are already involved in research in computational biology. Other anticipated readers are mature scientists who contemplate entering computational biology after having research experience in another field of science. It is not anticipated that the series will attract general readership. However, the authors of individual books are encouraged to include advanced tutorials concerning foundations of their specific sub-fields of computational biology. Thereby it will be possible to use books from the series as textbooks for students and researchers entering the field.
