CAMBRIDGE, U.K.--Reflecting the "the sharpened focus in its priority fields of molecular biology and genome bioinformatics," the peer-reviewed journal Computer Applications in the Biosciences (CABIOS) has announced that it will change its name to Bioinformatics beginning in 1998. As Bioinformatics, the publication will "maintain strong links with the world's molecular databanks, ensuring it remains at the forefront of innovations in the application and use of the internet in this field," promised executive editors Gary Stormo of the University of Colorado and Chris Sander of the European Bioinformatics Institute.
