Introduction Bioinformatics represents a new field at the interface of the twentieth-century revolutions in molecular biology and computers. A focus of this new discipline is the use of computer databases and computer algorithms to analyze proteins, genes, and the complete collections of deoxyribonucleic acid DNA that comprises an organism the genome.
A major challenge in biology is to make sense of the enormous quantities of sequence data and structural data that are generated by genome-sequencing projects, proteomics, and other large-scale molecular biology efforts. The tools of bioinformatics include computer programs that help to reveal fundamental mechanisms underlying biological problems related to the structure and function of macromolecules, biochemical pathways, disease processes, and evolution.
According to a National Institutes of Health NIH definition, bioinformatics is research, development, or application of computational tools and approaches for expanding the use of biological, medical, behavioral or health data, including those to acquire, store, organize, analyze, or visualize such data. The related discipline of computational biology is the development and application of data-analytical and theoretical methods, mathematical modeling and computational simulation techniques to the study of biological, behavioral, and social systems.
While the discipline of bioinformatics focuses on the analysis of molecular sequences, genomics and functional genomics are two closely related disciplines. The goal of genomics is to determine and analyze the complete DNA sequence of an organism, that is, its genome. The DNA encodes genes, which can be expressed as ribonucleic acid RNA transcripts and then in many cases further translated into.
For additional definitions of bioinformatics and functional genomics, see Boguski , Luscombe et al. Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics, Second Edition.
Functional genomics describes the use of genomewide assays in the study of gene and protein function. The aim of this book is to explain both the theory and practice of bioinformatics and genomics. The book is especially designed to help the biology student use computer programs and databases to solve biological problems related to proteins, genes, and genomes.
Bioinformatics is an integrative discipline, and our focus on individual proteins and genes is part of a larger effort to understand broad issues in biology, such as the relationship of structure to function, development, and disease. For the computer scientist, this book explains the motivations for creating and using algorithms and databases. There are three main sections of the book.
The first part Chapters 2 to 7 explains how to access biological sequence data, particularly DNA and protein sequences Chapter 2. We introduce multiple sequence alignment Chapter 6 and show how multiply aligned sequences can be visualized in phylogenetic trees Chapter 7. Chapter 7 thus introduces the subject of molecular evolution. The second part of the book describes functional genomics approaches to RNA and protein and the determination of gene function Chapters 8 to We then describe the technology of DNA microarrays and examine microarray data analysis Chapter 9.
From RNA we turn to consider proteins from the perspective of protein families, and the analysis of individual proteins Chapter 10 and protein structure Chapter We conclude the middle part of the book with an overview of the rapidly developing field of functional genomics Chapter Since , the genomes have been sequenced for several thousand viruses, prokaryotes bacteria and archaea , and eukaryotes, such as fungi, animals, and plants. The third section of the book covers genome analysis Chapters 13 to Chapter 13 provides an overview of the study of completed genomes and then descriptions of how the tools of bioinformatics can elucidate the tree of life.
We describe bioinformatics resources for the study of viruses Chapter 14 and bacteria and archaea Chapter 15; these are two of the three main branches of life. Next we examine the eukaryotic chromosome Chapter 16 and explore the genomes of a variety of eukaryotes, including fungi Chapter 17 , organisms from parasites to primates Chapter 18 , and then the human genome Chapter Finally, we explore bioinformatic approaches to human disease Chapter The first perspective on bioinformatics is the cell Fig.
The focus of molecular biology has been on individual genes, messenger RNA. The rst perspective of the eld of bioinformatics is the cell. Bioinformatics has emerged as a discipline as biology has become transformed by the emergence of molecular sequence data.
Corresponding databases of expressed genes RNA and protein have been established. A main focus of the eld of bioinformatics is to study molecular sequence data to gain insight into a broad range of biological problems. A focus of the field of bioinformatics is the complete collection of DNA the genome , RNA the transcriptome , and protein sequences the proteome that have been amassed Henikoff, These millions of molecular sequences present both great opportunities and great challenges.
A bioinformatics approach to molecular sequence data involves the application of computer algorithms and computer databases to molecular and. The second perspective of bioinformatics is the organism. Broadening our view from the level of the cell to the organism, we can consider the individuals genome collection of genes , including the genes that are expressed as RNA transcripts and the protein products.
Thus, for an individual organism bioinformatics tools can be applied to describe changes through developmental time, changes across body regions, and changes in a variety of physiological or pathological states.
Such an approach is sometimes referred to as functional genomics. This typifies the essential nature of bioinformatics: biological questions can be approached from levels ranging from single genes and proteins to cellular pathways and networks or even whole genomic responses Ideker et al.
Our goals are to understand how to study both individual genes and proteins and collections of thousands of genes or proteins. From the cell we can focus on individual organisms, which represents a second perspective of the field of bioinformatics Fig. Each organism changes across different stages of development and for multicellular organisms across different regions of the body.
For example, while we may sometimes think of genes as static entities that specify features such as eye color or height, they are in fact dynamically regulated across time and region and in response to physiological state. Gene expression varies in disease states or in response to a variety of signals, both intrinsic and environmental.
Many bioinformatics tools are available to study the broad biological questions relevant to the individual: there are many databases of expressed.
The third perspective of the eld of bioinformatics is represented by the tree of life. The scope of bioinformatics includes all of life on Earth, including the three major branches of bacteria, archaea, and eukaryotes. Viruses, which exist on the borderline of the denition of life, are not depicted here.
For all species, the collection and analysis of molecular sequence data allow us to describe the complete collection of DNA that comprises each organism the genome. We can further learn the variations that occur between species and among members of a species, and we can deduce the evolutionary history of life on Earth.
After Barns et al. Used with permission. One of the most powerful applications of functional genomics is the use of DNA microarrays to measure the expression of thousands of genes in biological samples. At the largest scale is the tree of life Fig. There are many millions of species alive today, and they can be grouped into the three major branches of bacteria, archaea single-celled microbes that tend to live in extreme environments , and eukaryotes.
Molecular sequence databases currently hold DNA sequences from over , different organisms. The complete genome sequences of thousands of organisms are now available, including organellar and viral genomes. One of the main lessons we are learning is the fundamental unity of life at the molecular level. We are also coming to appreciate the power of comparative genomics, in which genomes are compared. Through DNA sequence analysis we are learning how chromosomes evolve and are sculpted through processes such as chromosomal duplications, deletions, and rearrangements, as well as through whole genome duplications Chapters 16 to Figure 1.
Chapter 1: Introduction Chapter 2: How to obtain sequences Chapter 3: How to compare two sequences Chapters 4 and 5: How to compare a sequence to all other sequences in databases Chapter 6: How to multiply align sequences Chapter 7: How to view multiply aligned sequences as phylogenetic trees. The globin family is one of the best characterized in biology.
Historically, hemoglobin was one of the first proteins to be studied, having been described in the s and s by Mulder, Liebig, and others. Myoglobin, a globin that binds oxygen in the muscle tissue, was the first protein to have its structure solved by x-ray crystallography Chapter Hemoglobin, a tetramer of four globin subunits principally a2b2 in adults , is the main oxygen carrier in blood of vertebrates. Its structure was also one of the earliest to be described. The comparison of myoglobin, alpha globin, and beta globin protein sequences represents one of the earliest applications of multiple sequence alignment Chapter 6 , and led to the development of amino acid substitution matrices used to score protein relatedness Chapter 3.
In the s as DNA sequencing technology emerged, the globin loci on human chromosomes 16 for a globin and 11 for b globin were among the first to be sequenced and analyzed.
The globin genes are exquisitely regulated across time switching from embryonic to fetal to adult forms and with tissue-specific gene expression. We will discuss these loci in the description of the control of gene expression Chapter While hemoglobin and myoglobin remain the best-characterized globins, the family of homologous proteins extends to two separate classes of plant globins, invertebrate hemoglobins some of which contain multiple globin domains within one protein molecule , bacterial homodimeric hemoglobins consisting of two globin subunits , and flavohemoglobins that occur in bacteria, archaea, and fungi.
Thus the globin family is useful as we survey the tree of life Chapters 13 to Another protein we will use as an example is retinol-binding protein RBP4 , a small, abundant secreted protein that binds retinol vitamin A in blood Newcomer and Ong, Retinol, obtained from carrots in the form of vitamin A, is very hydrophobic.
RBP4 helps transport this ligand to the eye where it is used for vision. We will study RBP4 in detail because it has a number of interesting features: There are many proteins that are homologous to RBP4 in a variety of species, including human, mouse, and fish orthologs. We will use these as examples of how to align proteins, perform database searches, and study phylogeny. There are other human proteins that are closely related to RBP4 paralogs.
Altogether the family that includes RBP4 is called the lipocalins, a diverse group of small ligand-binding proteins that tend to be secreted into extracellular spaces Akerstrom et al. Other lipocalins have fascinating functions such as apoliprotein D which binds cholesterol , a pregnancy-associated lipocalin, aphrodisin an aphrodisiac in hamsters , and an odorant-binding protein in mucus. There are bacterial lipocalins, which could have a role in antibiotic resistance Bishop, We will explore how bacterial lipocalins could be ancient genes that entered eukaryotic genomes by a process called lateral gene transfer.
Because the lipocalins are small, abundant, and soluble proteins, their biochemical properties have been characterized in detail.
The three-dimensional protein structure has been solved for several of them by x-ray crystallography Chapter Some lipocalins have been implicated in human disease. The chapters of this book are intended to provide both the theory of bioinformatics subjects as well as a practical guide to using computer databases and algorithms.
Web resources are provided throughout each chapter. Chapters end with brief sections called Perspective and Pitfalls. The perspective feature describes the rate of growth of the subject matter in each chapter.
For example, a perspective on Chapter 2 access to sequence information is that the amount of DNA sequence data deposited in GenBank is undergoing an explosive rate of growth.
In contrast, an area such as pairwise sequence alignment, which is fundamental to the entire field of bioinformatics Chapter 3 , was firmly established in the s and s. But even for fundamental operations such as multiple sequence alignment Chapter 6 and molecular phylogeny Chapter 7 dozens of novel, ever-improving approaches are introduced at a rapid rate.
For example, hidden Markov models and Bayesian approaches are being applied to a wide range of bioinformatics problems.

Он подумал было попросить пилота радировать Стратмору, чтобы тот передал его послание Сьюзан, но не решился впутывать заместителя директора в их личные дела. Сам он трижды пытался связаться со Сьюзан - сначала с мобильника в самолете, но тот почему-то не работал, затем из автомата в аэропорту и еще раз - из морга.
Я подумал о том, чтобы его ликвидировать, но со всей этой шумихой вокруг кода и его заявлений о ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ мы тут же стали бы первыми подозреваемыми. И вот тогда меня осенило. - Он повернулся к Сьюзан. - Я понял, что Цифровую крепость не следует останавливать. Сьюзан смотрела на него в растерянности.
