Handbook of Computational Molecular Biology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Handbook of Computational Molecular Biology offers a comprehensive, systematic treatment of computational biology, from the most basic concepts to advanced applications. Algorithmic in nature, the handbook highlights applications to molecular biology through every topic covered. In addition, many of the newer topics in the field are covered in depth, like microarrays, comparative genomics and external memory algorithms, and parallel methods. Written by experts in the field, it covers problems related to understanding genetic diseases, the design of drugs tailored to the individual, deciphering the genomes of specific organisms, and understanding the process of evolution.

Book News Annotation:

Introducing computational molecular biology to readers with a technical background in computer science, Aluru (electrical and computer engineering, Iowa State U.) has designed this work to serve as a reference book for researchers and practitioners, a compendium of introductory and advanced material to aid the entry of new researchers into the field, and a resource for classroom instruction of graduate and senior level undergraduate students. He begins with a discussion of the fundamental topic of alignments to discover evolutionary relationships between biological sequences. Subsequent chapters cover string data structures and their applications in computational biology; computational problems arising from genome assembly and expressed sequent tag clustering; computational methods that arise in understanding genomes, relationships between genomes and various organisms, and the mechanism of genetic inheritance; microarrays and analysis of gene expression, as well as approaches for inference and applications of protein structure information; and algorithmic issues in designing bioinformatic databases and the application of mining techniques to biological data.
