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 progr …
