Bioinformatics is the study of biological information and biological systems- such as of the relationships between the sequence, structure and function of genes and proteins. The subject has seen tremendous development in recent years, and there are ever-increasing needs for good understanding of quantitative methods in the study of proteins. Protein Bioinformatics: An algorithmic Approach to Sequence and Structure Analysis takes the novel approach of covering both the sequence and structure analysis of proteins in one volume and from and algorithmic perspective.
Provides a comprehensive introduction to the analysis of protein sequences and structures.
Provides an integrated presentation of methodology, examples, exercises and applications.
Emphasises the algorithmic rather than mathematical aspects of the methods described.
Covers comparison and alignment of protein sequences and structures as well as protein structure prediction focusing on threading approaches.
Written in an accessible yet rigorous style, suitable for biologists, mathematicians and computer scientists alike.
Suitable both for developers and users of bioinformatics tools.
Supported by a Web site featuring exercises, solutions, images, and computer programs.
Protein Bioinformatics: An Algorithmic Approach to Sequence and Structure Analysis is ideally suited for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of bioinformatics, statistics, mathematics and computer science. It also provides an excellent introduction and reference source on the subject for practitioners and researchers.
