Algorithmics for the Life Sciences

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter


The life sciences, in particular molecular biology and medicine, have wit- nessed fundamental progress since the discovery of the “the Double Helix”. A rele- vant part of such an incredible advancement in knowledge has been possible thanks to synergies with the mathematical sciences, on the one hand, and computer science, on the other. Here we review some of the most relevant aspects of this cooperation focusing on contributions given by the design, analysis and engineering of fast al- gorithms for the life sciences.
