Описание: This classroom-tested text provides an in-depth introduction to the algorithmic techniques applied in bioinformatics. For each topic, the author clearly details the biological motivation, precisely defines the corresponding computational problems, and includes detailed examples to illustrate each algorithm. The text covers basic molecular biology concepts, sequence similarity, the suffix tree, sequence databases, sequence and genome alignment, the phylogenetic tree, genome rearrangement, motif finding, the secondary structure of RNA, peptide sequencing, and population genetics. Supplementary material is provided on the author’s website and a solutions manual is available for qualifying instructors.
Описание: Bioinformatics has never been as popular as it is today. The genomics revolution is generating so much data in such rapid succession that it has become
difficult for biologists to decipher. In particular, there are many problems in biology that are too large to solve with standard methods.
Researchers in evolutionary computation
(EC) have turned their attention to these problems. They understand the power of EC to rapidly search very large and complex spaces and return reasonable solutions. While these
researchers are increasingly interested in problems from the biological sciences, EC and its problem-solving capabilities are generally not yet understood or applied in the biology
This book offers a definitive resource to bridge the computer science and biology communities. Gary Fogel and David Corne, w
ll-known representatives of these fields, introduce biology and bioinformatics to computer scientists, and evolutionary computation to biologists and computer scientists unfamiliar with
these techniques. The fourteen chapters that follow are written by leading computer scientists and biologists who examine successful applications of evolutionary computation to
various problems in the biological sciences.
It describes applications of EC to bioinformatics in a wide variety of areas including DNA sequencing, protein folding, gene and
protein classification, drug targeting, drug design, data mining of biological databases, and biodata visualization. It offers industrial and academic researchers in computer science,
biology, and bioinformatics an important resource for applying evolutionary computation. It includes a detailed appendix of biological data resources.

Описание: Books on bioinformatics which began appearing in the mid 80s primarily served gene-hunters, and biologists who wished to construct family trees showing tidy lines of descent. Given the great pharmaceutical industry interest in genes, this trend has continued in most subsequent texts. These deal extensively with the exciting topic of gene discovery and searching databases, but hardly consider genomes as information channels through which multiple forms and levels of information, including genic information, have passed through the generations.
Описание: This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 10th European Conference on Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Data Mining in Bioinformatics, EvoBIO 2012, held in M?laga, Spain, in April 2012 co-located with the Evo* 2012 events. The 15 revised full papers presented together with 8 poster papers were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. Computational Biology is a wide and varied discipline, incorporating aspects of statistical analysis, data structure and algorithm design, machine learning, and mathematical modeling toward the processing and improved understanding of biological data. Experimentalists now routinely generate new information on such a massive scale that the techniques of computer science are needed to establish any meaningful result. As a consequence, biologists now face the challenges of algorithmic complexity and tractability, and combinatorial explosion when conducting even basic analyses.
Описание: Constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th European Conference on Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Data Mining in Bioinformatics, EvoBIO 2009, held in Tubingen, Germany, in April 2009 co located with the Evo 2009 events. This book includes such topics as biomarker discovery, cell simulation and modeling, and ecological modeling.

Описание: Books on bioinformatics which began appearing in the mid 80s primarily served gene-hunters, and biologists who wished to construct family trees showing tidy lines of descent. Given the great pharmaceutical industry interest in genes, this trend has continued in most subsequent texts. These deal extensively with the exciting topic of gene discovery and searching databases, but hardly consider genomes as information channels through which multiple forms and levels of information, including genic information, have passed through the generations. This book identifies the types of information that genomes transmit, shows how competition between different types is resolved in the genomes of different organisms, and identifies the evolutionary forces involved. The early chapters relate the form of information with which we are most familiar, namely written texts, to the DNA text that is our genome. This lends itself well to introducing historical aspects dating back to the nineteenth century.

Описание: Homology - a similar trait shared by different species and derived from common ancestry, such as a seal`s fin and a bird`s wing - is one of the most fundamental yet challenging concepts in evolutionary biology. This book provides a mechanistically based theory of what homology is and how it arises in evolution.
Описание: This unique anthology brings together a marvelous collection of Darwin's most accessible and significant writings, providing the most fully rounded picture of his ideas to be found in a single volume. This marvelous book presents readers with the key chapters of his most important books, including excerpts from the Journal of Researches on the Beagle voyage (1845), the Origin of Species (1859), and the Descent of Man (1871), along with the full, authoritative text of Darwin's delightful autobiography Recollections. These writings are accompanied by generous selections of responses from Darwin's nineteenth-century readers, providing a keen sense of the original controversy sparked by his ideas. The wide-ranging Introduction by James A. Secord explores the global impact and origins of Darwin's work and the reasons for its unparalleled significance today. The book also includes a map of the Beagle's voyage, a biographical appendix identifying everyone mentioned in the texts, illustrations from the Journal of Researches, and an index. This generous collection of Darwin's finest writings will make a superb introduction to ideas that truly changed the world.

Описание: Evolutionary psychology aims to understand and describe human behaviour in the light of past and continuing selection and adaption. Though a young and developing discipline, the past couple of decades has seen enormous progress. As the science matures, its scope will inevitably begin to broaden towards tackling contemporary issues in human society. Applied Evolutionary Psychology is the first book to overtly consider how basic evolutionary thinking is being applied to a wide range of special social, economic, and technical problems. It draws together a collection of renowned academics from a very disparate set of fields, whose common interest lies in using evolutionary thinking to inform their research.

Описание: Recent research in biomechanics is increasingly revealing a set of special cases where universal physical laws constrain the trajectories and, more controversially, even the endpoints of the evolutionary process. For the first time this book brings together a broad range of examples from the latest research in evolutionary biomechanics to examine this phenomenon.
