The first comprehensive overview of preprocessing, mining, and postprocessing of biological data
Molecular biology is undergoing exponential growth in both the volume and complexity of biological data—and knowledge discovery offers the capacity to automate complex search and data analysis tasks. This book presents a vast overview of the most recent developments on techniques and approaches in the field of biological knowledge discovery and data mining (KDD)—providing in-depth fundamental and technical field information on the most important topics encountered.
Written by top experts, Biological Knowledge Discovery Handbook: Preprocessing, Mining, and Postprocessing of Biological Data covers the three main phases of knowledge discovery (data preprocessing, data processing—also known as data mining—and data postprocessing) and analyzes both verification systems and discovery systems.
