Data Mining for Bioinformatics
MetadataShow full item record
In this chapter, we discuss the analysis of biomedical, DNA, and protein data. A detailed discussion is made on the major databases, such as the nucleotide sequence database, the protein sequence database, and the gene expression database. In order to make use of the data from these databases, efficient software tools are needed to retrieve data, compare biological sequences, discover patterns, and visualize the discovered knowledge. The most widely used tools are also covered.
