Leek leek: see onion.
Hardy, vigorous, biennial plant (Allium porrum) of the lily family, native to the eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East. It has a mild, sweet, onionlike flavour. (biochemistry and molecular biology molecular biology, scientific study of the molecular basis of life processes, including cellular respiration, excretion, and reproduction. The term molecular biology was coined in 1938 by Warren Weaver, then director of the natural sciences program at the Rockefeller , Pennsylvania State U.) carefully balances biology and computer science to create a supportive environment for bioscience students encountering bioinformatics for the first time and includes a wealth of exercises within the text and on the web. After a strong introduction he covers genome organization and evolution, alignments and phylogenetic trees, structural bioinformatics Structural bioinformatics refers to the branch of bioinformatics which is related to the analysis and prediction of the three-dimensional structure of biological macromolecules such as proteins. and drug delivery, and proteomics and systems biology Systems biology, a field of study in the biosciences, focuses on the systematic study of complex interactions in biological systems. Particularly from 2000 onwards, the term is used widely in the biosciences, and in a variety of contexts. . Each chapter includes summaries, margin notes and recommended reading, and the illustrations are helpful rather than intrusive, making this a gentle introduction to a complex subject.
