  • Information


The use of computers and computational methods has become ubiquitous in biological and biomedical research.

During the last 2 decades most basic algorithms have not changed, but what has is the huge increase in computer speed and ease of use, along with the corresponding orders of magnitude decrease in cost. A general perception exists that the only applications of computers and computer methods in biological and biomedical research are either basic statistical analysis or the searching of DNA sequence data bases.

While these are important applications they only scratch the surface of the current and potential applications of computers and computer methods in biomedical research.

The various chapters within this volume include a wide variety of applications that extend far beyond this limited perception.

As part of the Reliable Lab Solutions series, Essential Numerical Computer Methods brings together chapters from volumes 210, 240, 321, 383, 384, 454, and 467 of Methods in Enzymology.

These chapters provide a general progression from basic numerical methods to more specific biochemical and biomedical applications.
