توضیحات کتاب (خلاصه پیشگفتار):

With a large number of prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes completely sequenced and more forthcoming, access to the genomic information and synthesizing it for the discovery of new knowledge have become central themes of modern biological research. Mining the genomic information requires the use of sophisticated computational tools. It therefore becomes imperative for the new generation of biologists to be familiar with many bioinformatics programs and databases to tackle the new challenges in the genomic era. To meet this goal, institutions in the United States and around the world are now offering graduate and undergraduate students bioinformatics-related courses to introduce them to relevant computational tools necessary for the genomic research. To support this important task, this text was written to provide comprehensive coverage on the state-of-the-art of bioinformatics in a clear and concise manner.

The idea of writing a bioinformatics textbook originated from my experience of teaching bioinformatics at Texas A&M University. I needed a text that was comprehensive enough to cover all major aspects in the field, technical enough for a college level course, and sufficiently up to date to include most current algorithms while at the same time being logical and easy to understand. The lack of such a comprehensive text at that time motivated me to write extensive lecture notes that attempted to alleviate the problem. The notes turned out to be very popular among the students and were in great demand from those who did not even take the class. To benefit a larger audience, I decided to assemble my lecture notes, as well as my experience and interpretation of bioinformatics, into a book.

This book is aimed at graduate and undergraduate students in biology, or any practicing molecular biologist,who has no background in computer algorithms but wishes to understand the fundamental principles of bioinformatics and use this knowledge to tackle his or her own research problems. It covers major databases and software programs for genomic data analysis, with an emphasis on the theoretical basis and practical applications of these computational tools. By reading this book, the reader will become familiar with various computational possibilities for modern molecular biological research and also become aware of the strengths and weaknesses of each of the software tools.

The reader is assumed to have a basic understanding of molecular biology and biochemistry. Therefore, many biological terms, such as nucleic acids, amino acids, genes, transcription, and translation, are used without further explanation.One exception is protein structure, for which a chapter about fundamental concepts is included so that algorithms and rationales for protein structural bioinformatics can be better understood. Prior knowledge of advanced statistics, probability theories, and calculus is of course preferable but not essential.

This book is organized into six sections: biological databases, sequence alignment, genes and promoter prediction, molecular phylogenetics, structural bioinformatics, and genomics and proteomics. Most of the programs described in this book are online tools that are freely available and do not require special expertise to use them. I have designed a number of practical web exercises with detailed step-by-step procedures that aim to serve as examples of the correct use of a combined set of bioinformatics tools for solving a particular problem.

One of the challenges in writing this text was to cover sufficient technical background of computational methods without extensive display of mathematical formulas. I strived to maintain a balance between explaining algorithms and not getting into too much mathematical detail, which may be intimidating for beginning students and nonexperts in computational biology. This sometimes proved to be a tough balance for me because I risk either sacrificing some of the original content or losing the reader. To alleviate this problem, I chose in many instances to use graphics instead of formulas to illustrate a concept and to aid understanding.
