Information Processing and Living Systems (Advances in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology)

Buy
Information processing and information flow occur in the course of an organism's development and throughout its lifespan. Organisms do not exist in isolation, but interact with each other constantly within a complex ecosystem. The relationships between organisms, such as those between prey or predator, host and parasite, and between mating partners, are complex and multidimensional. In all cases, there is constant communication and information flow at many levels.

This book focuses on information processing by life forms and the use of information technology in understanding them. Readers are first given a comprehensive overview of biocomputing before navigating the complex terrain of natural processing of biological information using physiological and analogous computing models. The remainder of the book deals with artificial processing of biological information as a human endeavor in order to derive new knowledge and gain insight into life forms and their functioning. Specific innovative applications and tools for biological discovery are provided as the link and complement to biocomputing.

Since artificial processing of biological information is complementary to natural processing, a better understanding of the former helps us improve the latter. Consequently, readers are exposed to both domains and, when dealing with biological problems of their interest, will be better equipped to grasp relevant ideas.

Type 2 Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, and the Metabolic Syndrome: The Primary Care Guide to Diagnosis and Management (Current Clinical Practice)
Type 2 Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, and the Metabolic Syndrome: The Primary Care Guide to Diagnosis and Management (Current Clinical Practice)

Well-known and highly respected diabetes authority Ronald A. Codario, MD, details for busy primary care practitioners the state of the art in diagnosing and managing diabetes, as well as in reducing patient risk factors. Using an evidence-based approach, Dr. Codario explains, in simple clinical terms that avoid the complexity of much larger...

Foundations of Geometric Algebra Computing (Geometry and Computing)
Foundations of Geometric Algebra Computing (Geometry and Computing)

The author defines “Geometric Algebra Computing” as the geometrically intuitive development of algorithms using geometric algebra with a focus on their efficient implementation, and the goal of this book is to lay the foundations for the widespread use of geometric algebra as a powerful, intuitive mathematical language for...

Python Testing Cookbook
Python Testing Cookbook

Testing has always been a part of software development. For decades, comprehensive testing was defined by complex manual test procedures backed by big budgets; but something revolutionary happened in 1998. In his Guide to Better Smalltalk, Smalltalk guru Kent Beck introduced an automated test framework called SUnit. This triggered an...

LightWave 3D 8 Texturing (Wordware Game and Graphics Library)
Before we begin to explore all the theory and techniques that are involved
in the process of texturing, it is vital to observe the world around you in
such a way as to enable you to understand exactly what you need to create
within the computer-generated environment in which you work. Merely
observing the world on a superficial
