Methods in Molecular Biology #2237: Data Mining Techniques for the Life Sciences Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whereas getting exact data about living systems and sophisticated experimental procedures have primarily absorbed the minds of researchers previously, the development of high-throughput technologies has caused the weight to increasingly shift to the problem of interpreting accumulated data in terms of biological function and biomolecular mechanisms. In Data Mining Techniques for the Life Sciences, experts in the field contribute valuable information about the sources of information and the techniques used for "mining" new insights out of databases. Beginning with a section covering the concepts and structures of important groups of databases for biomolecular mechanism research, the book then continues with sections on formal methods for analyzing biomolecular data and reviews of concepts for analyzing biomolecular sequence data in context with other experimental results that can be mapped onto genomes. As a volume of the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series, this work provides the kind of detailed description and implementation advice that is crucial for getting optimal results. Authoritative and easy to reference, Data Mining Techniques for the Life Sciences seeks to aid students and researchers in the life sciences who wish to get a condensed introduction into the vital world of biological databases and their many applications.

Book News Annotation:

Biological dating mining is going to become the core of biological and biomedical research in the future, according to Carugo (U. of Pavia, Italy) and Eisenhaber (Agency for Science, Technology and Research, Singapore), who present 22 chapters describing methods of general relevance for such investigations. They present the material in three sections that discuss concepts and structures of important groups of databases for biomolecular mechanism research; describe formal methods for analyzing biomolecular data, including methods of comparison and concepts and tools for automated learning; and review concepts for analyzing biomolecular data in context with other experimental results that can be mapped onto genomes.
