Grid Computing for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology / Edition 1

The only single, up-to-date source for Grid issues inbioinformatics and biology

Bioinformatics is fast emerging as an important discipline foracademic research and industrial applications, creating a need forthe use of Grid computing techniques for large-scale distributedapplications. This book successfully presents Grid algorithms andtheir real-world applications, provides details on modern andongoing research, and explores software frameworks that integratebioinformatics and computational biology.

Additional coverage includes:

Bio-ontology and data mining

Data visualization

DNA assembly, clustering, and mapping

Molecular evolution and phylogeny

Gene expression and micro-arrays

Molecular modeling and simulation

Sequence search and alignment

Protein structure prediction

Grid infrastructure, middleware, and tools for bio data

Grid Computing for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology is anindispensable resource for professionals in several research anddevelopment communities including bioinformatics, computationalbiology, Grid computing, data mining, and more. It also serves asan ideal textbook for undergraduate- and graduate-level courses inbioinformatics and Grid computing.
