Part of the “Bioinformatics & Biomedical Imaging” series, the 248-page volume Biological Database Modeling presents innovative modeling concepts, methods and software tools that are integrated with case studies in genomics, functional genomics, proteomics and drug discovery projects. Chapters cover areas such as microarray data management, data management in expression-based proteomics, and the principles and practices of model-driven drug discovery, including model abstraction, and target and lead identification. A section addresses information management and interaction in high-throughput screening for antimalarial drug discovery. Charts, diagrams, references and an index are included.
