Bioinformatics, a field devoted to the interpretation and analysis of biological data using computational techniques, has evolved tremendously in recent years due to the explosive growth of biological information generated by the scientific community. Soft computing is a consortium of methodologies that work synergistically and provides, in one form or another, flexible information processing capabilities for handling real-life ambiguous situations. Several research articles dealing with the application of soft computing tools to bioinformatics have been published in the recent past; however, they are scattered in different journals, conference proceedings and technical reports, thus causing inconvenience to readers, students and researchers.This book, unique in its nature, is aimed at providing a treatise in a unified framework, with both theoretical and experimental results, describing the basic principles of soft computing and demonstrating the various ways in which they can be used for analyzing biological data in an efficient manner. Interesting research articles from eminent scientists around the world are brought together in a systematic way such that the reader will be able to understand the issues and challenges in this domain, the existing ways of tackling them, recent trends, and future directions. This book is the first of its kind to bring together two important research areas, soft computing and bioinformatics, in order to demonstrate how the tools and techniques in the former can be used for efficiently solving several problems in the latter.
The United States of America owes trillions of dollars to creditors, and the amount is increasing every day. If the country continues on its current track, it could result in dire consequences for the government and its citizens. But a realistic solution could liberate us from the national debt crisis.
Elias Hill, a retired industrial engineer who prides himself on finding solutions to difficult problems, presents that solution. If implemented, it would
-place the country on a solid financial foundation, free of foreign economic pressures; -guarantee the financing of all social programs--especially those that provide work incentives and benefits for lower-income populations; -establish a solid income base that would allow the government to meet its financial requirements; and-prevent future situations that could lead to financial ruin.
By paying down its debt, the United States could regain its economic prestige and preserve its ability to help others while building a stronger, more secure society. Discover how to help the nation overcome its problems with US National Debt Recovery.
