Book Description

Bioinformatics: A Practical Guide to Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis contains the latest material in the subject, covering NGS applications and meeting the requirements of a complete semester course. This book digs deep into analysis, providing both concept and practice to satisfy the exact need of researchers seeking to understand and use NGS data reprocessing, genome assembly, variant discovery, gene profiling, epigenetics, and metagenomics. The book does not introduce the analysis pipelines in a black box, but with detailed analysis steps to provide readers with the scientific and technical backgrounds required to enable them to conduct analysis with confidence and understanding. The book is primarily designed as a companion for researchers and graduate students using sequencing data analysis, but will also serve as a textbook for teachers and students in biology and bioscience.
