COMPUTATIONAL AND EVOLUTIONARY ANALYSIS OF HIV MOLECULAR SEQUENCES
(Editors: Allen G. Rodrigo & Gerald H. Learn, Jr.)
We are pleased to announce the publication of the edited volume
"Computational and Evolutionary Analysis of HIV Molecular Sequences" by
Kluwer Academic Publishers (for details, please see
Computational and Evolutionary Analysis of HIV Molecular Sequences is for
all researchers invested in HIV research, even those who have only a
nodding acquaintance with computational biology (or those who are
familiar with some, but not all aspects of the field). HIV research is
unusual in that it brings together scientists from a wide range of
disciplines: clinicians, pathologists, immunologists, epidemiologists,
virologists, computational biologists, structural biologists,
evolutionary biologists, statisticians and mathematicians. This book
seeks to bridge the gap between these groups, in both subject matter and
terminology. Focused largely on HIV genetic variation, Computational and
Evolutionary Analysis of HIV Molecular Sequences covers such issues as
sampling and processing sequences, population genetics, phylogenetics
and drug targets.
