Fundamentals Of Bioinformatics
Fundamentals Of Bioinformatics by S Harisha
Bioinformatics is an upcoming discipline of Life Sciences. It is an integration of computer science, and mathematical and statistical methods to manage and analyze the biological data. The fundamental issues that directly impact an understanding of life at structural, functional and molecular level, and regulation of gene expression can be studied by using bioinformatics tools.This pioneering book provides up-to-date information on bioinformatics and emphasizes recent topics like drug design technology, pharmacogenomics, proteomics and genomics. The present textbook will be an asset to Life sciences and technology institutions, since it has been designed based on the prescribed syllabus of various Indian Universities and aboard, and cover all the important topics on Bioinformatics.
