Bioinformatics is a new discipline that addresses the need to manage and interpret the data that in the past decade was massively generated by genomic research. This discipline represents the convergence of genomics, biotechnology and information technology, and encompasses analysis and interpretation of data, modeling of biological phenomena, and development of algorithms and statistics. This book presents an introduction to bioinformatics.

We present an algorithm for calculating the exact concentration of resource at any point in space or time, given that the resource in the network is lost or delivered out of the network at a given rate, while being subject to advection and diffusion.

This course is designed for biologists who already have some programming knowledge in other languages. The focus is on biological examples that are used throughout the course, as well as the suggested exercises drawn from the field of biology.
