Learn how to use modern Python bioinformatics libraries and applications to do cutting-edge research in computational biology
Bioinformatics is an active research field that uses a range of simple-to-advanced computations to extract valuable information from biological data.
This book covers next-generation sequencing, genomics, metagenomics, population genetics, phylogenetics, and proteomics. You’ll learn modern programming techniques to analyze large amounts of biological data. With the help of real-world examples, you’ll convert, analyze, and visualize datasets using various Python tools and libraries.
This book will help you get a better understanding of working with a Galaxy server, which is the most widely used bioinformatics web-based pipeline system. This updated edition also includes advanced next-generation sequencing filtering techniques. You’ll also explore topics such as SNP discovery using statistical approaches under high-performance computing frameworks such as Dask and Spark.
By the end of this book, you’ll be able to use and implement modern programming techniques and frameworks to deal with the ever-increasing deluge of bioinformatics data.
