"This book will provide insights into algorithms and software development skills that will help the reader to develop or modify software so solve biological problems. Examples of bioinformatics solutions include DNA analysis to determine coding regions, secondary structure, protein folding and the phenotypes associated with DNA. Bioinformatics is also necessary to perform association studies linking Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) to genetic diseases. Sophisticated algorithms to determine the relationship between organisms and their phylogenetic evolutionary history are also important to bioinformatics. And there are are a large number of other topics like Mass Spectrometry that require bioinformatics to analyze the results of an experiment. This book will focus on the algorithms needed to perform many of these tasks. This topic falls in the overlap between Biology, Genetics, Statistics and Computer Science."

Workshop Summary ( 2000 )

"The goal of this workshop was to bring together bioinformatics stake holders from government, academe, and industry for a day of presentations and dialogue. Fifteen experts identified and discussed some of the most important issues raised by the current flood of biologic data. Topics explored included the importance of database curation, database integration and interoperability, consistency and standards in terminology, error prevention and correction, data provenance, ontology, the importance of maintaining privacy, data mining, and the need for more computer scientists with specialty training in bioinformatics. Although formal conclusions and recommendations will not come from this particular workshop, many insights may be gleaned about the future of this field, from the context of the discussions and presentations described here."
