Applications of fuzzy logic in bioinformatics

Author: Dong Xu
Publisher: London : Imperial College Press ; Hackensack, N.J. : Distributed by World Scientific, 2008.
Series: Series on advances in bioinformatics and computational biology, v. 9.

Summary:
"Many biological systems and objects are intrinsically fuzzy as their properties and behaviors contain randomness or uncertainty. In addition, it has been shown that exact or optimal methods have significant limitation in many bioinformatics problems. Fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic are ideal to describe some biological systems/objects and provide good tools for some bioinformatics problems. This book  Read more...
