By L. Pachter,B. Sturmfels

The quantitative research of organic series info is predicated on equipment from facts coupled with effective algorithms from machine technology. Algebra presents a framework for unifying a few of the possible disparate strategies utilized by computational biologists. This publication, first released in 2005, bargains an creation to this mathematical framework and describes instruments from computational algebra for designing new algorithms for unique, actual effects. those algorithms will be utilized to organic difficulties similar to aligning genomes, discovering genes and developing phylogenies. the 1st a part of this e-book contains 4 chapters at the subject matters of data, Computation, Algebra and Biology, providing fast, self-contained introductions to the rising box of algebraic facts and its purposes to genomics. within the moment half, the 4 subject matters are mixed and built to take on actual difficulties in computational genomics. because the first ebook within the intriguing and dynamic region, it will likely be welcomed as a textual content for self-study or for complex undergraduate and starting graduate courses.
