Contemporary biomedical and clinical research is undergoing constant development thanks to the rapid advancement of various high throughput technologies at the DNA, RNA and protein levels. These technologies can generate vast amounts of raw data, making bioinformatics methodologies essential in their use for basic biomedical and clinical applications.
Bioinformatics for biomedical science and clinical applications demonstrates what these cutting-edge technologies can do and examines how to design an appropriate study, including how to deal with data and address specific clinical questions. The first two chapters consider Bioinformatics and analysis of the human genome. The subsequent three chapters cover the introduction of Transcriptomics, Proteomics and Systems biomedical science. The remaining chapters move on to critical developments, clinical information and conclude with domain knowledge and adaptivity.
- A coherent presentation of concepts, methodologies and practical tools that systematically lead to significant discoveries in the biomedical and clinical area
- Real examples of cutting edge discoveries
- The introduction of study types and technologies for all the DNA, RNA and protein levels
Researchers and postgraduates in biology, bioinformatics, medical informatics, immunology, pharmaceutical industry academic and clinical researchers in the field of bioinformatics, human biology, medicine, computational biology and computer science; Practitioners in sequencing centers, biotech, biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical companies
