Information Theoretic Methods for Bioinformatics

Guest Editors: Jorma Rissanen, Peter Grünwald, Jukka Heikkonen, Petri Myllymäki, Teemu Roos, and Juho Rousu

  1. Typical problems in bioinformatics involve large discrete datasets. Therefore, in order to apply statistical methods in such domains, it is important to develop efficient algorithms suitable for discrete data....
