CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Bioinformatics, a field devoted to the interpretation and analysis of
biological data using computational techniques, has evolved tremendously in
recent years due to the explosive growth of biological information generated by
the scientific community. Soft computing is a consortium of methodologies that
work synergistically and provides, in one form or another, flexible information
processing capabilities for handling real-life ambiguous situations. Several
research articles dealing with the application of soft computing tools to
bioinformatics have been published in the recent past; however, they are
scattered in different journals, conference proceedings and technical reports,
thus causing inconvenience to readers, students and researchers. This book,
unique in its nature, is aimed at providing a treatise in a unified framework,
with both theoretical and experimental results, describing the basic principles
of soft computing and demonstrating the various ways in which they can be used
for analyzing biological data in an efficient manner. Interesting research
articles from eminent scientists around the world are brought together in a
systematic way such that the reader will be able to understand the issues and
challenges in this domain, the existing ways of tackling them, recent trends,
and future directions. This book is the first of its kind to bring together two
important research areas, soft computing and bioinformatics, in order to
demonstrate how the tools and techniques in the former can be used for
efficiently solving several problems in the latter.
