DESCRIPTION
Grids are currently used in many sectors of life sciences, including basic
sciences such as genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics. 

The Handbook of Research on Computational Grid Technologies for Life
Sciences, Biomedicine, and Healthcare brings together state-of-the art
methodologies and developments of grid technologies applied in different
fields of life sciences. This Handbook of Research considers the use of grid
technologies to support research and application of each information level
where life science research takes place - a useful reference source for
academicians, medical practitioners, and researchers involved in all areas
of healthcare technologies.

****************************************
"The book surveys state-of-the art research, methodologies and applications
of Grid technology in different fields of Life Sciences, from basic science
to clinical and healthcare applications." 

-Mario Cannataro, University Magna Graecia of Catanzaro, Italy
