The complete, practical guide to bioinformatics for molecular biologists and life scientists

  • Gives an overview of bioinformatics from a computer science perspective
  • Makes the computer science aspects of bioinformatics more understandable for life scientists.
  • Presents a ready reference for current and future online and standalone tools

In Bioinformatics Computing, Harvard Medical School and MIT faculty member Bryan Bergeron presents a comprehensive and practical guide to bioinformatics for life scientists at every level of training and practice. After an up-to-the-minute overview of the entire field, he illuminates every key bioinformatics technology, offering practical insights into the full range of bioinformatics applications-both new and emerging. Coverage includes:

  • Technologies that enable researchers to collaborate more effectively
  • Fundamental concepts, state-of-the-art tools, and "on the horizon" advances
  • Bioinformatics information infrastructure, including GENBANK and other Web-based resources
  • Very large biological databases: object-oriented database methods, data mining/warehousing, knowledge management, and more
  • 3D visualization: exploring the inner workings of complex biological structures
  • Advanced pattern matching techniques, including microarray research and gene prediction
  • Event-driven, time-driven, and hybrid simulation techniques

Bioinformatics Computing combines practical insight for assessing bioinformatics technologies, practical guidance for using them effectively, and intelligent context for understanding their rapidly evolving roles.
