Deep computing for the life sciences

Vol. 45, No. 3/4, 2001

Order No. G322-0227
 
Information technology is playing an increasingly important role in the life sciences. This double issue of the of the IBM Journal of Research and Development, and a companion issue of the IBM Systems Journal, illustrate how the use of a computationally intensive, molecular-based approach is advancing research in the life sciences. The issue contains 14 papers that pertain to molecular structure modeling, genomic and proteomic analysis, protein folding, and drug design.
