About this book

Web Service Mining: Application to Discoveries of Biological Pathways presents the major issues and solutions to mining services on the Web. This book focuses specifically on a reference framework for Web service mining that is inspired by molecular recognition and the drug discovery process; known as a molecular-based approach. Web Service Mining: Application to Discoveries of Biological Pathways applies the service mining framework and techniques back to biological processes for the discovery of biological pathways. It links various processes that are involved in an interaction network, as well as provides performance benchmarks for assessing web service mining techniques and algorithms. About this book: • Presents in-depth analysis of issues related to service mining on the Web. • Includes a novel application of service modeling and mining methodologies to the discovery of biological pathways. Web Service and Mining: Application to Discoveries of Biological Pathways is designed for researchers and practitioners working in the web service oriented computing industry. This book is also suitable for advanced-level students in computer science and biology as a secondary text or reference book.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The authors take a unique molecular-based approach to identifying these high-value Web services by leveraging biological processes, specifically with the application of biological pathways. Their inspiration comes from a combination of nature’s molecular recognition and the unnatural drug discovery process. … I recommend this book to data mining practitioners who are always on the lookout for new and innovative approaches that can enable transformation in their field.” (Eric W. Yocam, ACM Computing Reviews, June, 2011)
