Biomolecular sequence comparison is the origin of bioinformatics. This book gives a complete in-depth treatment of the study of sequence comparison. The book examines alignment methods and techniques, and features a new issue of sequence comparison.
Bioinformatics is constantly evolving, but a core body of algorithmic ideas for a problem-solving approach in the field has emerged. This handbook stresses that approach as it covers all relevant areas of computational biology and bioinformatics.
This essential reference presents a comprehensive overview of cutting-edge research in applications of Petri nets in systems biology. The book will enable readers to apply and develop their own biochemical models using Petri net techniques.
This textbook provides a comprehensive, in-depth treatment of the fundamental concepts and research challenges involved in the mathematical modeling and computer simulation of electrophysiological heart processes, under normal and pathological conditions.
This book offers state-of-the-art research on statistical methods in molecular and systems biology, with contributions from leading experts. Each chapter discusses theoretical aspects, applications to biological problems, and possible future developments.
This book introduces a cutting-edge mathematical formalism based on the asymptotic limit theorems of information theory to describe how punctuated shifts in mesoscale ecosystems can entrain patterns of gene expression and organismal evolution.
In this excellent text, the reader is given a comprehensive introduction to the field of DNA computing. The book emphasizes computational methods to tackle central problems of DNA computing, such as controlling living cells, building patterns, and generating nanomachines.
The problem many microbiologists face is simply that of too much information. Built around teaching computational and bioinformatic methodology, this book details published methods for comparing genomes and provides examples of how to make custom comparisons.
