Book Description

Chemoinformatics: Advanced Control and Computational Techniques provides an important understanding of the main computational techniques used for processing chemical and biological structural data. The theoretical background to a number of techniques is introduced. General data analysis techniques and examination of the application techniques in the industy are presented, along with current practices and current research. The book also provides practical experience of commercially available systems and includes small-scale chemoinformatics-related projects.

The book offers scope for academics, researchers, and engineering professionals. Chapters range from new methods to novel applications of existing methods and help provide an understanding of the material and/or structural behavior of new and advanced systems. It includes innovative chapters on the growth of educational, scientific, and industrial research activities among chemical engineers. It provides the latest coverage of chemical databases and the development of new computational methods and efficient algorithms for chemical software and chemical engineering.
