About this book

This textbook presents mathematical models in bioinformatics and describes biological problems that inspire the computer science tools used to manage the enormous data sets involved. The first part of the book covers mathematical and computational methods, with practical applications presented in the second part. The mathematical presentation avoids unnecessary formalism, while remaining clear and precise. The book closes with a thorough bibliography, reaching from classic research results to very recent findings.

Biography

Andrzej Polanski is Professor at the Silesian University of Technology. Prior to this, he worked as a Post Doctoral Fellow at the University of Texas, Human Genetics Center, Houston USA (1996-1997) ans as a Visiting Professor at Rice University, Houston USA (2001-2003). His research interests are in bioinformatics, biomedical modeling and control, modern control and optimization theory. Marek Kimmel, Ph.D., is a Professor of Statistics at Rice University in Houston, TX, Professor in Department of Automatic Control, Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice, Poland, Professor of Biostatistics and Applied Mathematics (adj.) at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, and a Professor of Biometry (adj.) at the School of Public Health of the University of Texas in Houston. He is heading the Rice Bioinformatics Group as well as the doctoral program in Statistical Genetics and Bioinformatics. Dr. Kimmel is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association. His principal interests are stochastic modeling of human disease (in particular lung cancer progression and screening), statistical and population genetics, biostatistics and bioinformatics.

Media reviews
From the reviews: "The authors present mathematical models in bioinformatics and describe the biological problems that inspire the computer science tools used to handle the enormous data sets involved. ! Who is it for? Graduates and researchers who want more than just another guide on how to use databases. Presentation Clear and logical. Would you recommend it? Yes, if you are interested in the statistical and mathematical underbelly of bioinformatics." (Times Higher Education, May, 2008) "The strength of the book is its thorough survey of bioinformatics topics. ! Its structure--two parts (foundations and applications), well-classified problem areas, and a gradual approach for problem framing and solving- make it invaluable for computer scientists learning bioinformatics, or biologists applying computational methods to their fields. The book is suitable for graduate students and professionals, and can serve as a reference for state-of-the-art issues and solutions." (Cherif Keramane, ACM Computing Reviews, September, 2008) "In this comprehensive textbook, the authors present mathematical models in bioinformatics and describe the biological problems that inspire the computer science tools used to handle the enormous data sets involved. ! the book closes with a thorough bibliography, reaching from classical research results to very recent findings, providing many pointers for future research. This volume is ideally suited for a senior undergraduate or graduate course on bioinformatics, with a strong focus on its mathematical and computer science background." (T. Postelnicu, Zentrablatt MATH, Vol. 1153, 2009)
