About this book

This innovative book provides a completely fresh exploration of bioinformatics, investigating the interrelationship between bioinformatics, biology and computer science, and exploring key developments in computer science that are critical for its future. The book studies bioinformatics from a unique perspective bridging the gap between what we want computers to do for us in biology, what is actually possible with computer technology today and what may be possible in the future.

Bioinformatics Challenges at the Interface of Biology and Computer Science examines where bioinformatics is today, the need for biological databases, the underpinning data types, and current analysis methods. Importantly it reflects on how far these approaches have brought us in supporting biological research and how much further we still need to go. It considers knowledge management, data mining, infrastructure, and aspects of human computer interaction. Examples are given and explored at an appropriate level, and full-colour images illustrate computer graphics and data visualization concepts.

This book is essential in bridging the gap between the emerging issues in traditional bioinformatics and developments in computer science. It is an invaluable resource for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students who wish to learn how to use bioinformatics tools, apply them to their own biological interests, and develop their own software and databases. It is also essential reading for lecturers, researchers and professionals with an interest in this fascinating and fast-moving subject.

Please note: this book was originally announced with the title Bioinformatics and Computer Science.
