Compact Handbook of Computational Biology by A.K. Konopka,M. James C. Crabbe

By A.K. Konopka,M. James C. Crabbe

The assimilation of computational tools into the existence sciences has performed an enormous function in advancing organic learn. From sequencing genomes to studying motifs in huge collections of functionally an identical sequences of nucleic acids and proteins, the worth of robust computational instruments has turn into abundantly transparent. The Compact guide of Computational Biology describes the foundational options, strategies, and demanding situations of biomolecular series research, biopolymer constitution research and prediction, genomics, and molecular evolution.

Comprising contributions from popular scientists, a lot of whom pioneered present methodologies, the Compact guide of Computational Biology bargains interdisciplinary and authoritative assurance of tools for research of nucleic acid and protein sequences and buildings, definition and detection of motifs in nucleic acid and protein sequences, protein constitution prediction, and discrete modeling of biopolymers. particular computational issues contain computer-assisted learn on protein folding, computer-assisted reports of DNA-protein interactions, computer-assisted genomics, proteomics, and comparative genomics, and computer-assisted experiences of genome evolution on the molecular (DNA) level.

Offering a survey of particular algorithms that experience confirmed winning in molecular biology, genomics, structural biology, and bioinformatics, this priceless guide is an authoritative resource masking terminology, software program, and purposes of computational biology.
