Horizon Scientific Press titles focus on high-level microbiology and molecular biology topics. Written by internationally renowned and highly respected leaders in the field, they comprise of review manuals, practical manuals, and reference texts for research scientists, bioscience professionals and graduate students.
Computational Genomics details the application of current computational methods to DNA and protein science. Topics are covered in depth with a practical approach that enables biologists to perform analyses and comparisons of sequence data and to determine functional and structural characteristics of proteins. In particular, the book aims to provide an understanding of ways in which such analyses and comparisons are performed in order to help the scientist to be more effective in performing such tasks and intercepting the results.
This major new work is an invaluable laboratory manual for all scientists engaged in computational genomics. Topics covered include database searches, sequence analysis and comparison, multiple sequence analysis, large-scale EST analysis, genome browsing, protein structure prediction, microarray data analysis, and proteomics. The book is also useful as a teaching reference for graduates and undergraduate students.
