Bioinformatics and the Cell is the first book with comprehensive numerical illustration of mathematical techniques and computational algorithms used in bioinformatics to convert the rapidly increasing molecular data into organized biological knowledge, with a focus on interactions among DNA, RNA and proteins in the cell.
By rendering both mathematics and biology to numbers, this book should appeal not only to biologists, but also to mathematicians, biostatisticians, and computational scientists, especially those younger ones with an ambition to conquer the rough terrain of bioinformatics.
From the reviews: "In this book the author makes an 'effort to render both mathematical equations and biology to numbers'. ! he works out a lot of illustrative examples to make biologists understand the mathematics and computational scientists understand the biology of a wide range of problems in bioinformatics. ! The book is addressed to graduate students majoring in sciences and software engineering. Biologists with a sound knowledge of computer programming should be able to implement the presented algorithms in their own programs." (Wiebke Werft, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1166, 2009)
