The mission of ISCB is to advance the scientific understanding of living systems through computation. On behalf of its global membership, ISCB communicates the significance of our science to the larger scientific community, governments, and the public at large, thus impacting government and scientific policies.
Primary activities include providing high quality publications and meetings, and distributing valuable information about training, education, employment and relevant news from related fields. ISCB membership offers many benefits including reduced conference registration fees to several high impact events, most prominently ISMB, ECCB, PSB and RECOMB, as well as reduced subscription prices for a selection of journals related to computational biology and bioinformatics. ISCB proudly offers the open-access PLoS Computational Biology as its official journal, and publishes the ISMB conference proceedings in partnership with Oxford University Press in open-access format as part of a regular issue of Bioinformatics.

Reid, a critique of selectionism and the proposal of an alternate theory of emergent evolution that is causally sufficient for evolutionary biology. Modeling Biology: Structures, Behaviors, Evolution, edited by Manfred D. Laubichler and Gerd B. Müller, experts examine new modeling strategies for the interpretation of biological data and their integration into the conceptual framework of theoretical biology, detailing approaches that focus on morphology, development, behavior, or evolution.
Biological Theory: Integrating Development, Evolution, and Cognition. A journal devoted to theoretical advances in the biological and cognitive sciences, with an emphasis on the conceptual integration afforded by evolutionary and developmental approaches, and will appeal to a wide audience of scientists, social scientists, philosophers and historians of biology. http://www.mitpressjournals.org/loi/biot
