This book offers a definitive resource that bridges two communities. Gary Fogel and David Corne, well-known representatives of these fields, have written an introduction to biology and bioinformatics for computer scientists and an introduction to evolutionary computation for biologists and for computer scientists unfamiliar with these techniques. The remaining eighteen chapters, written by leading computer scientists and biologists examine successful applications of evolutionary computation in areas such as: DNA sequencing, protein folding, DNA annotation, gene and protein classification, drug targeting, drug design, data mining of biological databases, and biodata visualisation. The appendix provides a full listing of biological data resources.
