This book presents a selection of revised full papers accepted for presentation at the First International Conference on Biology, Informatics, and Mathematics, JOBIM 2000, held in Montpellier, France, in May 2000. The 13 papers included in the book were selected after two rounds of reviewing and revision from a total of 67 submissions. Among the topics addressed are algorithms, comparative genomics, evolution, phylogeny, databases, knowledge... more...

Evolution is a complex process, acting at multiple scales, from DNA sequences and proteins to populations of species. Understanding and reconstructing evolution is of major importance in numerous subfields of biology. For example, phylogenetics and sequence evolution is central to comparative genomics, attempts to decipher genomes, and molecular epidemiology. Phylogenetics is also the focal point of large-scale international biodiversity assessment... more...

This book considers evolution at different scales: sequences, genes, gene families, organelles, genomes and species. The focus is on the mathematical and computational tools and concepts, which form an essential basis of evolutionary studies, indicate their limitations, and give them orientation. Recent years have witnessed rapid progress in this area, with models and methods becoming more realistic, powerful, and complex.This book of contributed... more...
