This book offers a detailed overview of translational bioinformatics together with real-case applications. Translational bioinformatics integrates the areas of basic bioinformatics, clinical informatics, statistical genetics and informatics in order to further our understanding of the molecular basis of diseases. By analyzing voluminous amounts of molecular and clinical data, it also provides clinical information, which can then be applied. Filling the gap between clinic research and informatics, the book is a valuable resource for human geneticists, clinicians, health educators and policy makers, as well as graduate students majoring in biology, biostatistics, and bioinformatics.

Dongqing Wei is a professor at the State Key Laboratory of Microbial Metabolism and acting head of Department of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics, College of Life Science and Biotechnology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He also serves as the editor-in-chief for the journal "Interdisciplinary Sciences - Computational Life Sciences" and...

Editorial Reviews

"This translational bioinformatics book addresses the drug discovery process, selected aspects of precision medicine, and analytics and modeling approaches with examples. . It appears to be of primary interest to graduate students in bioinformatics-related areas and to established researchers in related fields looking for an overview of current approaches with examples." (David M. Liebovitz, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2017)
