Powerful new techniques have revolutionized the field of molecular biology. The vast amount of DNA sequence information produced by next-generation sequencers demands new bioinformatics
algorithms to analyze the data.
This book provides an introduction to algorithms and data structures that operate efficiently on strings (especially those used to represent long DNA sequences). It focuses on algorithms for sequence analysis (string algorithms), but also covers genome rearrangement problems and phylogenetic reconstruction methods.
Topics and features:
Primarily aimed at graduate or advanced undergraduate students from computer science or bioinformatics, this book will also interest practitioners and researchers from these fields.
