Discover modern,next-generation sequencing libraries from Python ecosystem to analyze large amounts of biological data
Bioinformatics is an active research field that uses a range of simple-to-advanced computations to extract valuable information from biological data.
This book covers next-generation sequencing,genomics,metagenomics,population genetics,phylogenetics,and proteomics. You’ll learn modern programming techniques to analyze large amounts of biological data. With the help of real-world examples,you’ll convert,analyze,and visualize datasets using various Python tools and libraries.
This book will help you get a better understanding of working with a Galaxy server,which is the most widely used bioinformatics web-based pipeline system. This updated edition also includes advanced next-generation sequencing filtering techniques. You’ll also explore topics such as SNP discovery using statistical approaches under high-performance computing frameworks such as Dask and Spark.
By the end of this book,you’ll be able to use and implement modern programming techniques and frameworks to deal with the ever-increasing deluge of bioinformatics data.
