Realize easy methods to streamline advanced bioinformatics functions with parallel computing
This ebook permits readers to address extra complicated bioinformatics purposes and bigger and richer info units. because the editor in actual fact indicates, utilizing strong parallel computing instruments can result in major breakthroughs in decoding genomes, figuring out genetic affliction, designing custom-made drug remedies, and knowing evolution.
A wide diversity of bioinformatics functions is roofed with demonstrations on how each might be parallelized to enhance functionality and achieve swifter charges of computation. present parallel computing options and applied sciences are tested, together with dispensed computing and grid computing. Readers are supplied with a mix of algorithms, experiments, and simulations that offer not just qualitative but in addition quantitative insights into the dynamic box of bioinformatics.
Parallel Computing for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology is a contributed paintings that serves as a repository of case reports, jointly demonstrating how parallel computing streamlines tricky difficulties in bioinformatics and produces larger effects. all the chapters is authored by means of a longtime specialist within the box and punctiliously edited to make sure a constant strategy and excessive usual in the course of the publication.
The paintings is geared up into 5 parts:
* Algorithms and models
* series research and microarrays
* Protein folding
* structures and allowing technologies
Researchers, educators, and scholars within the box of bioinformatics will become aware of how high-performance computing can permit them to address extra advanced information units, achieve deeper insights, and make new discoveries.
