Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics
Second Edition
by Jonathan Pevsner

Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics continues to offer the most broad-based introduction to this explosive new discipline, combining theoretical context with practical applications.

Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics covers bioinformatics, a new field at the interface of the ongoing revolutions in molecular biology and computers.

A focus of this new discipline is the use of computer databases and computer algorithms to study proteins and genes, including sequence alignment, database searches, and phylogeny.

Highlight features:

  • Attractive two-color design throughout, with a section of full-color figures
  • Lavishly illustrated, featuring over 500 figures and tables with 50 NEW figures and tables in this edition
  • Highlights how the tools of bioinformatics can be used to further our understanding of basic processes in cell and molecular biology and genomics
  • Several fundamentally important proteins are included to better show how to apply bioinformatics tools to basic biological questions
  • Strong focus on the relevance of bioinformatics tools to the understanding of human disease
