Bioinformatics is an integrative field of computer science, genetics, genomics, proteomics, and statistics, which has undoubtedly revolutionized the study of biology and medicine in past decades. It mainly assists in modeling, predicting and interpreting large multidimensional biological data by utilizing advanced computational methods. Despite its enormous potential, bioinformatics is not widely integrated into the academic curriculum as most life science students and researchers are still not equipped with the necessary knowledge to take advantage of this powerful tool. Hence, the primary purpose of our book is to supplement this unmet need by providing an easily accessible platform for students and researchers starting their career in life sciences. This book aims to avoid sophisticated computational algorithms and programming. Instead, it mostly focuses on simple DIY analysis and interpretation of biological data with personal computers. Our belief is that once the beginners acquire these basic skillsets, they will be able to handle most of the bioinformatics tools for their research work and to better understand their experimental outcomes. Unlike other bioinformatics books which are mostly theoretical, this book provides practical examples for the readers on state-of-the-art open source tools to solve biological problems. Flow charts of experiments, graphical illustrations, and mock data are included for quick reference. Volume I is therefore an ideal companion for students and early stage professionals wishing to master this blooming field.

Das grundlegende Werk von Darwin On the Origin of Species liegt hier in der originalen Übersetzung durch Julius Victor Carus vor, erweitert durch zahlreiche Erläuterungen, aussagekräftige Abbildungen sowie wichtige historische Bezüge. Die Entstehung der Arten von Darwin ist für die heutige Leserschaft häufig schwierig zu verstehen. Eine hilfreiche Unterstützung erfolgt durch die farbliche Hervorhebung entscheidender Textstellen und viele fachliche Erklärungen. Darwins Analysen und Bewertungen aus den Gebieten der Botanik, Zoologie, Verhaltenslehre, Paläontologie und Entwicklungsbiologie werden in acht Beiträgen namhafter Fachwissenschaftler im Licht der gegenwärtigen Forschung beleuchtet und so wird erst die ungeheure Bedeutung und Weitsicht seines Werkes offensichtlich. Endlich liegen jetzt die Übersetzungen der beiden ebenso bahnbrechenden Aufsätze von Alfred Russel Wallace vor: der Sarawak- und Ternate-Essay. Wallace war neben Darwin der bedeutendste Evolutionsforscher seiner Zeit. Seine Arbeiten zur Evolutionsbiologie, die im Angelsächsischen hoch geschätzt sind, können als durchaus gleichrangig zu Darwins berühmtester Schrift angesehen werden. Ulrich Kutschera eröffnet das Buch mit einem Geleitwort und Reinhold Leinfelder schließt es mit einem Ausblick zur Bedeutung der Evolutionstheorie für die Zukunft des Menschen ab. Das Buch ist daher nicht nur eine unverzichtbare Lernhilfe für Schüler und Studenten, die sich mit der Evolutionsbiologie beschäftigen, sondern zusätzlich auch eine spannende weiterführende Lektüre für alle Leser mit Interesse an Wissenschaftsgeschichte.

Bioinformatics is a relatively new field of research. It evolved from the requirement to process, characterize, and apply the information being produced by DNA sequencing technology. The production of DNA sequence data continues to grow exponentially. At the same time, improved bioinformatics such as faster DNA sequence search methods have been combined with increasingly powerful computer systems to process this information. Methods are being developed for the ever more detailed quantification of gene expression, providing an insight into the function of the newly discovered genes, while molecular genetic tools provide a link between these genes and heritable traits. Genetic tests are now available to determine the likelihood of suffering specific ailments and can predict how plant cultivars may respond to the environment. The steps in the translation of the genetic blueprint to the observed phenotype is being increasingly understood through proteome, metabolome and phenome analysis, all underpinned by advances in bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is becoming increasingly central to the study of biology, and a day at a computer can often save a year or more in the laboratory. The volume is intended for graduate-level biology students as well as researchers who wish to gain a better understanding of applied bioinformatics and who wish to use bioinformatics technologies to assist in their research. The volume would also be of value to bioinformatics developers, particularly those from a computing background, who would like to understand the application of computational tools for biological research. Each chapter would include a comprehensive introduction giving an overview of the fundamentals, aimed at introducing graduate students and researchers from diverse backgrounds to the field and bring them up-to-date on the current state of knowledge. To accommodate the broad range of topics in applied bioinformatics, chapters have been grouped into themes: gene and genome analysis, molecular genetic analysis, gene expression analysis, protein and proteome analysis, metabolome analysis, phenome data analysis, literature mining and bioinformatics tool development. Each chapter and theme provides an introduction to the biology behind the data describes the requirements for data processing and details some of the methods applied to the data to enhance biological understanding.
