Pan-genomics: Applications, Challenges, and Future Prospects covers current approaches, challenges and future prospects of pan-genomics. The book discusses bioinformatics tools and their applications and focuses on bacterial comparative genomics in order to leverage the development of precise drugs and treatments for specific organisms. The book is divided into three sections: the first, an "overview of pan-genomics and common approaches,� brings the main concepts and current approaches on pan-genomics research; the second, "case studies in pan-genomics,� thoroughly discusses twelve case, and the last, "current approaches and future prospects in pan-multiomics�, encompasses the developments on omics studies to be applied on bacteria related studies.

This book is a valuable source for bioinformaticians, genomics researchers and several members of biomedical field interested in understanding further bacterial organisms and their relationship to human health.

Please Note: This is an On Demand product, delivery may take up to 11 working days after payment has been received.
