Bioinformatics Computing - 03 edition

Bioinformatics Computing (ISBN10: 0131008250; ISBN13: 9780131008250)
ISBN13: 978-0131008250
ISBN10: 0131008250

Summary: Appropriate for all courses in bioinformatics, for molecular biology students at all levels.

The field of bioinformatics is growing at an unprecedented rate, as molecular biologists discover the extraordinary range of computational techniques and applications that apply directly to their work. Now, Harvard Medical School and MIT faculty member Bryan Bergeron has written a comprehensive, practical guide to bioinformatics for biology students at every level.
Bergeron illuminates key advances in computer visualization, large database design, advanced pattern matching, machine learning, statistical methods, and distributed computing--and demonstrates exactly how these advances can be used to advance research into biological systems. Bergeron also identifies technologies and approaches on the near horizon that will have a significant impact on bioinformatics, and introduces the key global and societal issues most likely to shape bioinformatics in the coming years.
Features :
  • NEW--Brings together all of the latest advances in computing for biological research--Including visualization, large database design, advanced pattern matching, statistical methods, distributed computing--and places these advances in context.
  • Provides a single source for students who want to understand the full field of bioinformatics, and choose the right tools and technologies for their own research.
  • By one of the world's leading experts in technology for medical research--By Bryan Bergeron, faculty member at Harvard Medical School and MIT, Editor-in-Chief of e.MD, and Healthcare Informatics editorial board member.
  • Lets students learn from an expert with a profound understanding of bioinformatics and an exceptional ability to explain both the technologies and their implications.
  • Bioinformatics advances on the near horizon--Covers technologies and approaches that will soon have a major impact on bioinformatics practitioners.
  • Helps students anticipate foreseeable changes in bioinformatics, so they can prepare to take advantage of them.
  • Global and societal drivers of bioinformatics--Reviews the key global and societal issues that are most likely to shape the field of bioinformatics.
  • Helps students understand bioinformatics in its broadest context--and understand the non-technical issues that are likely to affect which technologies become available and how they are used.
