Recent advances in genomic studies have stimulated synergetic research and development in many cross-disciplinary areas. Genomic data, especially the recent large-scale microarray gene expression data, represents enormous challenges for signal processing and statistics in processing these vast data to reveal the complex biological functionality. This perspective naturally leads to a new field, genomic signal processing (GSP), which studies the processing of genomic signals by integrating the theory of signal processing and statistics. Written by an international, interdisciplinary team of authors, this invaluable edited volume is accessible to students just entering this emergent field, and to researchers, both in academia and industry, in the fields of molecular biology, engineering, statistics, and signal processing. The book provides tutorial-level overviews and addresses the specific needs of genomic signal processing students and researchers as a reference ! book The book aims to address current genomic challenges by exploiting potential synergies between genomics, signal processing, and statistics, with special emphasis on signal processing and statistical tools for structural and functional understanding of genomic data. The book is partitioned into three parts. In part I, a brief history of genomic research and a background introduction from both biological and signal-processing/statistical perspectives are provided so that readers can easily follow the material presented in the rest of the book. In part II, overviews of state-of-the-art techniques are provided. We start with a chapter on sequence analysis, and follow with chapters on feature selection, clustering, and classification of microarray data. The next three chapters discuss the modeling, analysis, and simulation of biological regulatory networks, especially gene regulatory networks based on Boolean and Bayesian approaches. The next two chapters treat visualization and c! ompression of gene data, and supercomputer implementation of genomic signal processing systems. Part II concludes with two chapters on systems biology and medical implications of genomic research. Finally, part III discusses the future trends in genomic signal processing and statistics research.

Edward R. Dougherty is a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Texas A&M University in College Station. He holds a Ph.D. in mathematics from Rutgers University and an M.S. in Computer Science from Stevens Institute of Technology. He is author of 11 books and over 100 journal papers. He has also edited four collections. He is an SPIE fellow and served as editor of the Journal of Electronic Imaging for six years. Ilya Shmulevich is an Assistant Professor at the Cancer Genomics Laboratory, the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center and an adjunct professor at the Department of Statistics, Rice University; he been recently appointed by Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle. Research interest: systems biology; computational biology; genomics; signal and image processing; machine learning. His research focuses on computational and mathematical modeling of genetic regulatory networks, their inference from genomic and proteomic measurement data, prediction of molecular pathways, development of algorithms for cancer classification, and design of novel high-throughput genomic technologies. Current research is directed at understanding how a cell’s behavior is governed by a complex dynamical system of genetic interactions and how these systems fail in disease, such as cancer. An important aspect of this research is the study of differentiation and cellular homeostatic stability ! from a systems perspective.
