BioSystems encourages theoretical, computational and experimental articles that link biology, evolutionary concepts, and the information processing sciences. The journal is dedicated to developing the consequences of the discoveries of biological information and of the genetic code - with the view of obtaining a better understanding of the origins and evolution of biological organization, biological adaptability, and the origin of mind and language.

The scope of the journal encompasses the fundamental nature of biological information processing. This includes quantum phenomena in information transfer, natural computing, biological coding systems, biological complexity, theoretical biology, artificial life, computational modeling of complex biological systems, evolutionary models of computation, application of biological principles to the design of novel computing systems, and the use of biomolecular materials to synthesize artificial systems that capture essential principles of natural biological information processing.

The journal does not publish purely medical, computational, or ecological research, unless it is clearly linked to the basic and conceptual aspects of biological organization.

The editors encourage articles that deal, in particular, with the following topics:

Biological computation

Molecular recognition

Physical foundations of biology

Quantum phenomena in biological systems

Cellular control

Neuromolecular computing

Biological coding systems

Molecular computing processes

Self-organizing and self-replicating systems

Origins and evolution of the genetic mechanism

Stochastic evolutionary algorithms

Origins and evolution of mind and language

Simulation of genetic and ecological systems

Applications (neural nets, machine learning, robotics)

In addition, the editors encourage the following types of papers for submission:

Papers that extract novel biological insights from multidimensional data using AI-driven language models

Biological hypothesis papers producing new insights based on a body of pre-existing empirical research
