The only single, up-to-date source for Grid issues in bioinformatics and biology

Bioinformatics is fast emerging as an important discipline for academic research and industrial applications, creating a need for the use of Grid computing techniques for large-scale distributed applications. This book successfully presents Grid algorithms and their real-world applications, provides details on modern and ongoing research, and explores software frameworks that integrate bioinformatics and computational biology.

Additional coverage includes:

Bio-ontology and data mining

Data visualization

DNA assembly, clustering, and mapping

Molecular evolution and phylogeny

Gene expression and micro-arrays

Molecular modeling and simulation

Sequence search and alignment

Protein structure prediction

Grid infrastructure, middleware, and tools for bio data

Grid Computing for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology is an indispensable resource for professionals in several research and development communities including bioinformatics, computational biology, Grid computing, data mining, and more. It also serves as an ideal textbook for undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in bioinformatics and Grid computing.
