Full Description
A Computer Scientist’s Guide to Cell Biology provides a 'reading knowledge' of biology to those coming into the field from the perspective of computer science-particularly from the areas of information retrieval and/or machine learning. The text explores three different facets of biology: biological systems, experimental methods, and language and nomenclature. The author discusses what biologists are trying to determine from their experiments, how various experimental procedures are used and how they relate to accepted concepts in computer science, and the vocabulary necessary to read and understand current literature in biology. Researchers, professionals and computer science students will find this an invaluable reference tool and an excellent starting point for a more comprehensive examination of cell biology.
