BIOINFORMATICS AND FUNCTIONAL GENOMICS JONATHAN PEVSNER PDF

Main Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics Pevsner , Jonathan The bestselling introduction to bioinformatics and genomics — now in its third edition Widely received in its previous editions, Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics offers the most broad-based introduction to this explosive new discipline. Now in a thoroughly updated and expanded third edition, it continues to be the go-to source for students and professionals involved in biomedical research. This book provides up-to-the-minute coverage of the fields of bioinformatics and genomics. Features new to this edition include: Extensive revisions and a slight reorder of chapters for a more effective organization A brand new chapter on next-generation sequencing An expanded companion website, also updated as and when new information becomes available Greater emphasis on a computational approach, with clear guidance of how software tools work and introductions to the use of command-line tools such as software for next-generation sequence analysis, the R programming language, and NCBI search utilities The book is complemented by lavish illustrations and more than figures and tables - many newly-created for the third edition to enhance clarity and understanding.

United States About Dr. Jonathan Pevsner is a professor and research scientist at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. Education Dr. He pursued post-doctoral training at the Stanford University School of Medicine, and joined the faculty of Kennedy Krieger Institute in Research The Pevsner Lab studies the molecular basis of childhood and adult brain disorders.

Studies include the following diseases, applying various tools of bioinformatics genomics. Sturge-Weber syndrome: In , the Pevsner Lab reported a somatic mutation that causes SWS a rare neurocutaneous disorder and port-wine birthmarks affected people.

They achieved this using whole genome sequencing. They are currently using biochemical approaches to understand the consequence of this mutation which occurs in GNAQ encoding a G protein alpha subunit. Bipolar disorder: Using genomics approaches to characterize somatic and germline mutations as well as transcriptional changes.

Autism spectrum disorder: Analyzing genomic data, particularly in children with severe autism and behavioral conditions such as self-injurious behavior. He teaches courses and workshops in bioinformatics and genomics. The Pevsner Lab is involved in bioinformatics research. Bioinformatics is the interface between molecular biology and computers. The lab has developed the following programs: [1] "Database Referencing of Array Genes ONline" DRAGON , a web-accessible database that helps researchers analyze the data obtained from microarrays or other gene expression experiments.

Once a microarray experiment indicates the expression levels of tens of thousands of genes, researchers must identify the biological characteristics associated with all of those genes and their encoded proteins.

Looking online for information about each gene individually is time-consuming and impractical. It then rapidly supplies information pertaining to a range of the biological characteristics of the genes in any microarray data set.

Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics, Third Edition serves as an excellent single-source textbook for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate-level courses in the biological sciences and computer sciences. It is also an indispensable resource for biologists in a broad variety of disciplines who use the tools of bioinformatics and genomics to study particular research problems; bioinformaticists and computer scientists who develop computer algorithms and databases; and medical researchers and clinicians who want to understand the genomic basis of viral, bacterial, parasitic, or other diseases.
