Discover how to streamline complex bioinformatics applications with parallel computing. This publication enables readers to handle more complex bioinformatics applications and larger and richer data sets. As the editor clearly shows, using powerful parallel computing tools can lead to significant breakthroughs in deciphering genomes, understanding genetic disease, designing customized drug therapies, and understanding evolution.

A broad range of bioinformatics applications is covered with demonstrations on how each one can be parallelized to improve performance and gain faster rates of computation. Current parallel computing techniques and technologies are examined, including distributed computing and grid computing. Readers are provided with a mixture of algorithms, experiments, and simulations that provide not only qualitative but also quantitative insights into the dynamic field of bioinformatics.

Parallel Computing for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology is a contributed work that serves as a repository of case studies, collectively demonstrating how parallel computing streamlines difficult problems in bioinformatics and produces better results. Each of the chapters is authored by an established expert in the field and carefully edited to ensure a consistent approach and high standard throughout the publication.

The work is organized into five parts:
  • Algorithms and models
  • Sequence analysis and microarrays
  • Phylogenetics
  • Protein folding
  • Platforms and enabling technologies
Researchers, educators, and students in the field of bioinformatics will discover how high-performance computing can enable them to handle more complex data sets, gain deeper insights, and make new discoveries.

Sorry for being gone for the past two weeks. I was experiencing problems with my computer. Luckily everything is working now and I did not lose anything… including ebooks! I'll start posting some the requests people asked of me. Also as you may notice, I am boycotting rapidshare. I will NOT be using rapidshare links for any posts. They decided to close my account (which I had paid for!) for no reason. So now I lost money, all my RS points, and links to my files that I uploaded. So if anyone wants to join me and boycott the greedy monopoly… all is welcome!

As always I hope you enjoy this book. Please reply with any request for books similar to this one. Also please recommend any additional books related to this topic.

You can also send me a message if you have any requests or comments.
