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.
BRYAN BERGERON is a faculty member at both Harvard Medical School and MIT, Editor-in-Chief of e.MD, editorial board member of Healthcare Informatics, and Fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics. He has authored more than 300 publications on topics ranging from AI to computers in medicine.
