The bestselling introduction to bioinformatics and functional
genomics--now in an updated edition
Widely received in its previous edition, "Bioinformatics and
Functional Genomics" offers the most broad-based introduction to
this explosive new discipline. Now in a thoroughly updated and
expanded "Second Edition, " it continues to be the go-to source for
students and professionals involved in biomedical research.
This edition provides up-to-the-minute coverage of the fields of
bioinformatics and genomics. Features new to this edition
Several fundamentally important proteins, such as globins,
histones, insulin, and albumins, are included to better show how to
apply bioinformatics tools to basic biological questions.A
completely updated companion web site, which will be updated as new
information becomes available - visit
www.wiley.com/go/pevsnerbioinformaticsDescriptions of genome
sequencing projects spanning the tree of life.A stronger focus on
how bioinformatics tools are used to understand human disease.
The book is complemented by lavish illustrations and more than
500 figures and tables--fifty of which are entirely new to this
edition. Each chapter includes a Problem Set, Pitfalls, Boxes
explaining key techniques and mathematics/statistics principles,
Summary, Recommended Reading, and a list of freely available
software. Readers may visit a related Web page for supplemental
information at www.wiley.com/go/pevsnerbioinformatics.
"Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics, Second Edition" serves
as an excellent single-source textbook for advanced undergraduate
and beginning graduate-level courses in the biological sciences and
computer sciences. It is also an indispensable resource for
biologists in a broad variety of disciplines who use the tools of
bioinformatics and genomics to study particular research problems;
bioinformaticists and computer scientists who develop computer
algorithms and databases; and medical researchers and clinicians
who want to understand the genomic basis of viral, bacterial,
parasitic, or other diseases.
Praise for the first edition:
.".".ideal both for biologists who want to master the
application of bioinformatics to real-world problems and for
computer scientists who need to understand the biological questions
that motivate algorithms."" Quarterly Review of Biology
.".". an excellent textbook for graduate students and upper
level undergraduate students."" Annals of Biomedical
.".".highly recommended for academic and medical libraries, and
for researchers as an introduction and reference..."" E-Streams
