Algorithms in bioinformatics: a practical introduction

By: Sung, Wing-Kin.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Chapman & Hall/CRC mathematical and computational biology series. Publisher: Boca Raton CRC Press 2010Description: xvii, 381 p. : ill. (some col.ISBN: 9781420070330.Subject(s): Bioinformatics | Genetic algorithmsDDC classification: 572.80285 Summary: This classroom-tested textbook begins with basic molecular biology concepts. It then describes ways to measure sequence similarity, presents simple applications of the suffix tree, and discusses the problem of searching sequence databases. After introducing methods for aligning multiple biological sequences and genomes, the text explores applications of the phylogenetic tree, methods for comparing phylogenetic trees, the problem of genome rearrangement, and the problem of motif finding. It also covers methods for predicting the secondary structure of RNA and for reconstructing the peptide sequence using mass spectrometry. The final chapter examines the computational problem related to population genetics. (http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781420070330)
