About the Book :
Being an interdisciplinary subject, Bioinformatics is today covering a range of interest both among the students and teaching communities. Taking this increasing interest into account, this book gives a comprehensive introduction to the subject. The text not only deals with the basic concepts but it also emphasizes the technical and practical aspects of the subject. The book covers the computational tools in bioinformatics, algorithmic aspects as well as technological aspects. Besides it gives a clear exposition of Viterbi algorithm, Hidden Markov models, UPGMA, FM algorithm, heuristic, developing and using substitution matrices, HMMs and derivation of a number of standard formulae in information theory and statistics. Finally the text focusses on the technological aspects of bioinformatics such as sequencing through shot gun methods, microarrays, with a variety of unsupervised methods in data analysis with examples, as well as interdisciplinary research in systems biology. The book is primarily intended as a text for the students of Computer Science, Information Technology, undergraduate students of Bioinformatics, PGDCA and biological sciences and biotechnology. The book should also be of considerable interest for research scientist in Chemistry and Pharmacy.
