Book Description

Advances in high-throughput biological methods have led to the publication of a large number of genome-wide studies in human and animal models. In this context, recent tools from bioinformatics and computational biology have been fundamental for the analysis of these genomic studies. The book Bioinformatics and Human Genomics Research provides updated and comprehensive information about multiple approaches of the application of bioinformatic tools to research in human genomics. It covers strategies analysis of genome-wide association studies, genome-wide
expression studies and genome-wide DNA methylation, among other topics. It provides interesting strategies for data mining in human genomics, network analysis, prediction of binding sites for miRNAs and transcription factors, among other themes. Experts from all around the world in bioinformatics and human genomics have contributed chapters in this book. Readers will find this book as quite useful for their in silico explorations, which would contribute to a better and deeper understanding of multiple biological processes and of pathophysiology of many human diseases.
