Series: Topics in Discrete Mathematics

The books in this series contain selected papers from the journals Discrete Mathematics and Discrete Applied Mathematics.

Most recent volume


Volume 12. Computational Molecular Biology

Published: 2nd April 2003 Editors: S. Istrail P. Pevzner R. Shamir
This volume contains papers demonstrating the variety and richness of computational problems motivated by molecular biology. The application areas within biology that give rise to the problems studied in these papers include solid molecular modeling, sequence comparison, phylogeny, evolution, mapping, DNA chips, protein folding and 2D gel technology. The mathematical techniques used are algorithmics, combinatorics, optimization, probability, graph theory, complexity and applied mathematics.

This is the fourth volume in the Discrete Applied Mathematics series on computational molecular biology, which is devoted to combinatorial and algorithmic techniques in computational molecular biology. This series publishes novel research results on the mathematical and algorithmic foundations of the inherently discrete aspects of computational biology.

Key features:

• protein folding • phylogenetic inference • 2-dimensional gel analysis • graphical models for sequencing by hybridisation • dynamic visualization of molecular surfaces • problems and algorithms in sequence alignment

This book is a reprint of Discrete Applied Mathematics Volume 127, Number 1.
