Bioinformatics in Tropical Disease Research

A Practical and Case-Study Approach

Editors: Arthur Gruber, Alan M Durham, Chuong Huynh, and Hernando A del Portillo.


This book is intended to serve both as a textbook for short bioinformatics courses and as a base for a self-teaching endeavor. It is divided in two parts: A. Bioinformatics Techniques and B. Case Studies. Each chapter of the first part addresses a specific problem in bioinformatics and consists of a theoretical part and of a detailed tutorial with practical applications of that theory using software freely available on the Internet. All of the authors who were selected for this part of the book have extensive experience in teaching Bioinformatics, either at WHO-TDR and other short-term courses, at universities around the world, or at both. In the second part, we invited renowned researchers to write chapters that represent up-to-date reviews of particular human diseases, including biological aspects and bioinformatics approaches that helped to solve specific problems.
