Abstract

Concepts in Bioinformatics and Genomics starts with a review of molecular biology and looks at its relevance to the topic. It then goes on to consider information organization and sequence databases, molecular evolution, substitution matrices, and pairwise sequence alignment. Other topics covered include the basic local alignment sequence tool and multiple sequence alignment, protein structure prediction, phylogenetics, genomics, transcript and protein expression analysis, and basic probability. There are also chapters on advanced probability for bioinformatics applications, programming basics and applications to bioinformatics, and how to develop a basic bioinformatics tool.
