Evolutionary Bioinformatics is a peer-reviewed open access academic journal focusing on computational biology in the study of evolution.

The journal was founded by the director of the New Zealand Bioinformatics Institute,[1] Allen Rodrigo in 2005 and is currently edited by Dennis Wall,[2] the Director of the Computational Biology Initiative at Harvard Medical School.[3] The journal serves as the official publication of the institute, and is published by Libertas Academica.
