Covering theory, algorithms, and methodologies, as well as data mining technologies, Data Mining for Bioinformatics provides a comprehensive discussion of data-intensive computations used in data mining with applications in bioinformatics. It supplies a broad, yet in-depth, overview of the application domains of data mining for bioinformatics to help readers from both biology and computer science backgrounds gain an enhanced understanding of this cross-disciplinary field.
The book offers authoritative coverage of data mining techniques, technologies, and frameworks used for storing, analyzing, and extracting knowledge from large databases in the bioinformatics domains, including genomics and proteomics. It begins by describing the evolution of bioinformatics and highlighting the challenges that can be addressed using data mining techniques. Introducing the various data mining techniques that can be employed in biological databases, the text is organized into four sections:
Supplies a complete overview of the evolution of the field and its intersection with computational learning
Describes the role of data mining in analyzing large biological databasesâexplaining the breath of the various feature selection and feature extraction techniques that data mining has to offer
Focuses on concepts of unsupervised learning using clustering techniques and its application to large biological data
Covers supervised learning using classification techniques most commonly used in bioinformaticsâaddressing the need for validation and benchmarking of inferences derived using either clustering or classification
The book describes the various biological databases prominently referred to in bioinformatics and includes a detailed list of the applications of advanced clustering algorithms used in bioinformatics. Highlighting the challenges encountered during the application of classification on biological databases, it considers systems of both single and ensemble classifiers and shares effort-saving tips for model selection and performance estimation strategies.
3D Lighting: History, Concepts, and Techniques (With CD-ROM) (Graphics Series) The majority of computer graphics books are either too general or too application-specific. The field of 3-D computer graphics possesses tremendous depth, and any aspect of it is worthy of a focused career. In large studios, artists concentrate on just one phase of production, be it modeling, texturing, animation, or rendering. If you're... A Business and Its Beliefs : The Ideas That Helped Build IBM
When first published in 1963, IBM CEO Thomas Watson Jr.’s A Business and Its Beliefs gave readers an unprecedented look inside IBM’s executive offices. Watson--son of IBM’s founder--candidly discussed how the company clung to its values during the first great technological shift, and how this refusal to compromise...
Music Theory For Dummies, with Audio CD-ROM
Welcome to Music Theory For Dummies!
What do you think of when you hear the phrase music theory? Does the image
of your elementary school music teacher scowling at you from behind the
piano pop into your head? Or perhaps a later image of fellow college students
in theory classes determinedly trying to notate...
