Biology is burdened with lots & lots of data say for example gigabases of DNA sequences, to overcome this threat biologists are using mathematical techniques, which in turn brings a novel strategy at examining the life processes.
Computational Biology is somewhat different from that of biological computation which includes computer engineering, computer science, using biology to build computers, while it is somewhat similar to bioinformatics which includes biological data to develop algorithms.
Subfields of Computational Biology includes Computational evolutionary biology, Computational biomodeling, Computational neuroscience, Computational genomics, Cancer computational biology, Computational pharmacology etc..
Computational Biology innovations are published in OMICS Group open access journal named as Journal of Applied & Computational Mathematics, the journal publishes recent trends and developments in various disciplines such as Mathematical modeling and simulation, Designing biological databases, Ecology, Evolution, anatomy, molecular biology, New tools for computational biology, Management of biological databases, biological computing, Pattern detection & matching, genomics etc.
