Features

    • Emphasizes the methods, approaches, and tools used to address the most important analytical challenges
    • Includes intuitive explanations of algorithms and formats required to process data, starting from the sequencing machine through quality control and alignment, variant calling, up to filtering and prioritization of results in the context of Mendelian disease and cancer.
    • Draws on the authors’ extensive experience in many areas of genomics and bioinformatics, including several exome-based disease-gene discoveries, the identification of characteristic alterations in secretory meningioma and meningeal hemangiopericytoma, as well as the development of widely-used software like the Human Phenotype Ontology and the Exomiser/Genomiser suite.

    Summary

    Exome and genome sequencing are revolutionizing medical research and diagnostics, but the computational analysis of the data has become an extremely heterogeneous and often challenging area of bioinformatics. Computational Exome and Genome Analysis provides a practical introduction to all of the major areas in the field, enabling readers to develop a comprehensive understanding of the sequencing process and the entire computational analysis pipeline.
