Algorithms for Next-Generation Sequencing

Wing-Kin Sung


Advances in sequencing technology have allowed scientists to study the human genome in greater depth and on a larger scale than ever before. But what are the best ways to deal with this flood of data?

Algorithms for Next-Generation Sequencing is an invaluable tool for students and researchers in bioinformatics and computational biology, who seek to process and manage the data generated by next-generation sequencing, and as a textbook or a self-study resource. In addition to offering an in-depth description of the algorithms for processing sequencing data, it also presents useful case studies describing the applications of this technology.
