Über den Autor
Dr. Xuhua Xia obtained his PhD in population biology at University of Western Ontario in 1990 and made his entry into molecular evolution and phylogenetics at University of Washington in 1993. He was recruited by University of Hong Kong in 1996 as an assistant professor, and served as a senior scientist and the founding head of the Bioinformatics Laboratory of HKU-Pasteur Research Centre. Dr. Xia joined University of Ottawa in 2002 where he is cross-appointed to both Biology Department and the School of Information Technology Engineering. He is an active member in the Center for Advanced Research in Environmental Genomics and the Ottawa Institute of Systems Biology. His web site is at http://dambe.bio.uottawa.ca.

The many books that have been published on bioinformatics tend toward either of two extremes: those that feature computational details with a great deal of mathematics, for computational scientists and mathematicians; and those that treat bioinformatics as a giant black box, for biologists. This is the first book using comprehensive numerical illustration of mathematical techniques and computational algorithms used in bioinformatics that converts molecular data into organized biological knowledge.
First book with comprehensive numerical illustration of mathematical techniques and computational algorithms used in bioinformatics to convert the rapidly increasing molecular data into organized biological knowledge
Focus on interactions among DNA, RNA and proteins in the cell
