Beschreibung:
The field of bioinformatics continues to develop energetically. This second edition covers new findings using the formula of the original text. It is self-contained, bringing together the multiple disciplines necessary for a profound grasp of the field.
Preface.- Introduction.- I: Information: The nature of information; The transmission of information; Sets and combinatorics; Probability and likelihood; Randomness and complexity; Systems, networks and circuits.- II: Biology: Introduction to part II; The nature of living things; The molecules of life.- III: Applications: Introduction to part III.- Genomics; Proteomics; Interactions; Metabolomics and metabonomics; Medical applications.- Bibliography.
An Introduction to Bioinformatics is intended to be a complete study companion for the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate student. It is self-contained in the sense that whatever the starting point may be, the reader will gain insight into bioinformatics. Underlying the work is the belief that bioinformatics is a kind of metaphoric lens through which the entire field of biology can be brought into focus, admittedly as yet imperfect, and understood in a unified way. Reflecting the highly incomplete present state of the field, emphasis is placed on the underlying fundamentals and acquisitions of a broad and comprehensive grasp of the field as a whole.Bioinformatics is interpreted as the application of information science to biology, in which it plays a fundamental and all-pervasive role. This interpretation enables a remarkably unified view of the entire field of biology to be taken and hence offers an excellent entry point into the life sciences for those for whom biology is unfamiliar.
