An invaluable tool in Bioinformatics, this unique volume providesboth theoretical and experimental results, and describes basicprinciples of computational intelligence and pattern analysis whiledeepening the reader's understanding of the ways in which theseprinciples can be used for analyzing biological data in anefficient manner.This book synthesizes current research in the integration ofcomputational intelligence and pattern analysis techniques, eitherindividually or in a hybridized manner. The purpose is to analyzebiological data and enable extraction of more meaningfulinformation and insight from it. Biological data for analysisinclude sequence data, secondary and tertiary structure data, andmicroarray data. These data types are complex and advanced methodsare required, including the use of domain-specific knowledge forreducing search space, dealing with uncertainty, partial truth andimprecision, efficient linear and/or sub-linear scalability,incremental approaches to knowledge discovery, and increased leveland intelligence of interactivity with human experts and decisionmakers
