The 14 papers consider how various methods in artificial intelligence are applied to problems in bioinformatics. Among the topics are statistical learning and kernel methods in bioinformatics, new machine learning methods for predicting protein topologies, multiple sequence alignments information in structure and function prediction, pattern discovery and the algorithms of surprise, the computational identification of regulatory sites in DNA sequences, computer system gene discovery for promoter structure analysis, and data acquisition and analysis in near-genome-wide expressions screening of tumor suppressor pathways using model cell lines with inducible transcription factors.
