Overview

Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics: 6th International Meeting, CIBB 2009, Genoa, Italy, October 15-17, 2009, Revised Selected Papers / Edition 1

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the Sixth International Meeting on Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics, CIBB 2009, held in Genova, Italy, in October 2009. The revised 23 full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 57 submissions. The main goal of the CIBB meetings is to provide a forum open to researchers from different disciplines to present and discuss problems concerning computational techniques in tools for bioinformatics, gene expression analysis and new perspectives in bioinformatics together with 4 special sessions on using game-theoretical tools in bioinformatics, combining Bayesian and machine learning approaches in bioinformatics: state of the art and future perspectives, data clustering and bioinformatics (DCB 2009) and on intelligent systems for medical decisions support (ISMDS 2009).

Table of Contents

Gr 4–6—This slim sequel to Cyberia (Scholastic, 2008) begins with a caged Zane counting down the minutes until his release from his room, which has become his prison. He has been confined for the past two months for trying to thwart evil veterinarian Dr. Gristle and his attempts at animal mind control. Once Zane is released, the doctor gives him a bird with a chip implanted in it that will brainwash the boy as he sleeps with the hope that Gristle will learn his secret of how he communicates with animals. At first Zane doesn't notice the brainwashing as he's so caught up in his deepening abilities, but his dog, Hugo, is instantly suspicious. When the doctor gives Zane's family a monkey as a servant, it is up to Hugo and Zane to ward off Gristle's attempts at mind control and figure out a way to set the animal free. This book has little of the humor and techno-talk of the previous book and it fizzles rather than sizzles. The plot doesn't go anywhere, and much of the story feels like filler for the next book. Very few of the plot threads come together in the end, and the monkey seems completely pointless, especially when so much of the story focuses on Zane and the bird.—Necia Blundy, Marlborough Public Library, MA
