Bioinformatics challenges at the interface of biology and by Teresa K. Attwood, Stephen R. Pettifer, David Thorne

By Teresa K. Attwood, Stephen R. Pettifer, David Thorne

This cutting edge ebook offers a totally clean exploration of bioinformatics, investigating its complicated interrelationship with biology and machine technological know-how. It methods bioinformatics from a special standpoint, highlighting interdisciplinary gaps that regularly seize the unwary.

The ebook considers how the necessity for organic databases drove the evolution of bioinformatics; it reports bioinformatics fundamentals (including database codecs, data-types and present research methods), and examines key themes in laptop technology (including data-structures, identifiers and algorithms), reflecting on their use and abuse in bioinformatics.

Bringing those disciplines jointly, this booklet is a vital learn when you desire to larger comprehend the demanding situations for bioinformatics on the interface of biology and desktop technological know-how, and the way to bridge the gaps. it will likely be a useful source for complex undergraduate and postgraduate scholars, and for academics, researchers and pros with an curiosity during this attention-grabbing, fast-moving self-discipline and the knotty difficulties that encompass it.
