Biomedical Informatics

by Vadim Astakhov

In past decades, the area of bioinformatics has proved to be both dynamic and vital, producing a wide spectrum of novel approaches and assuming an increasingly important role in modern bio-technological development. In Biomedical Informatics, expert researchers explore cutting-edge new advances in the field, providing an overview of novel cyberinfrastructures which are currently under development in various bio-medical centers across the world. Chapters demonstrate various architectures for large-scale collaboration, offer modern approaches currently used in various areas of bioinformatics, and highlight the software challenges associated with large-scale biomedical informatics. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyTM series format, chapters include a brief introduction, detailed methods, and a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Wide-ranging and innovative, Biomedical Informatics is an essential manual for newcomers to this area, as well as an invaluable addition to the laboratories and offices of the most practiced researchers.
