About this item

Bioinformatics and Computer Science provides a completely fresh exploration of bioinformatics, which investigates the interrelationship between bioinformatics, biology and computer science and explores key developments in computer science that are critical for its future. The book examines bioinformatics from a unique perspective bridging the gap between what we want computers to do for us in biology, what is actually possible with computer technology today and what may be possible in the future.Bioinformatics and Computer Science investigates where bioinformatics is today, the need for biological databases, their underpinning data types, and current analysis methods. It reflects on how far these approaches have brought us in supporting biological research and how much further we still need to go. It considers knowledge management, data mining, infrastructure, and aspects of human computer interaction and finishes with a review of the state of the art, showcasing some examples of how the main issues are being tackled today. The book contains a wealth of four colour images that illustrate computer graphics, data visualization concepts and examples explored within the text, and is an invaluable resource for all teachers and students working in this area of research.
