Life Explained (An Odile Jacob Book)

Fifty years in the past Francis Crick and James D. Watson proposed the double helix version for the DNA molecule. They believed that they had, as Crick placed it, found the “secret of life,” and plenty of agreed. yet within the intervening years, technology has marched—sometimes leaped—forward, and now the query “What is lifestyles?

Bioinformatics and Computational Biology: First International Conference, BICoB 2009, New Orleans, LA, USA, April 8-10, 2009. Proceedings

This booklet constitutes the refereed complaints of the 1st foreign on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, BICoB 2007, held in New Orleans, los angeles, united states, in April 2007. The 30 revised complete papers awarded including 10 invited lectures have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from seventy two preliminary submissions.

Biotechnology and Bioinformatics: Advances and Applications for Bioenergy, Bioremediation and Biopharmaceutical Research

Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of biotechnology, this e-book covers the position of particular supply of polymeric nanodrugs to melanoma cells, microbial detoxifying enzymes in bioremediation and bacterial plasmids in antimicrobial resistance. It addresses smooth tendencies reminiscent of pharmacogenomics, evaluate of gene expression, recombinant proteins from methylotrophic yeast, id of novel fermentation inhibitors of bioethanol construction, and polyhydroxyalkanoate established biomaterials.

Within the extensive literature on the shortest paths problem, the most common choices are the Dijkstra and the Floyd–Warshall algorithm [6]. The Dijkstra algorithm returns the lowest cost path between a source vertex ni and all other vertices in the network in O(NV2 ) time. For efficiency reasons, the algorithm return just one shortest path; enumerating all shortest paths between two vertices is computationally more tricky and expensive. To calculate the all-to-all distances, the Floyd– Warshall algorithm is the method of choice.

Nature Genetics, 35:176–179, 2003. 1 INTRODUCTION The term network is an informal description for a set of elements with connections or interactions between them. A typical example from biology is a protein interaction network. It consists of a set of proteins (elements) and a set of interactions between them (connections). The previous chapter introduced many different biological networks. Given such networks, we could be interested in questions such as Which protein has the highest number of interactions with other proteins in a protein interaction network?
