Wiley Book Series on Bioinformatics


Research and development in bioinformatics and computational biology require the cooperation of specialists from the fields of biology, computer science, mathematics, statistics, physics, and several related fields of endeavor. It is the comprehensive application of mathematics (e.g., probability and graph theory), statistics, science (e.g., biochemistry), and computer science (e.g., computer algorithms and machine learning) to the understanding of living systems. Bioinformatics is fast emerging as an important discipline for academic research and industrial applications. The large size of biological data sets, inherent complexity of biological problems and the ability to deal with error-prone data all result in special requirements such as large memory space and huge computation time. These challenges require computer scientists to re-think traditional methods and algorithms and to adapt them to this new discipline. The objective of this book series is therefore to provide timely treatments of the different aspects of bioinformatics spanning theory, new and established techniques, enabling technologies and tools, and application domains.


This series emphasizes the algorithmic, mathematical, statistical and computational methods that are central in bioinformatics and computational biology. Although the possible set of topics is large, the following areas are particularly suitable for this book series (note that the list is not exhaustive):


·        Bioinformatic databases

·        Biomedical image processing (segmentation, registration, fusion)

·        Bio-ontology and data mining

·        Computational genomics

·        Computational intelligence in bioinformatics
