Homology modeling is an extremely useful and versatile technique that is gaining more and more space and demand in research in computational and theoretical biology. This book, “Homology Molecular Modeling - Perspectives and Applications”, brings together unpublished chapters on this technique. In this book, 7 chapters are intimately related to the theme of molecular modeling, carefully selected and edited for academic and scientific readers. It is an indispensable read for anyone interested in the areas of bioinformatics and computational biology. Divided into 4 sections, the reader will have a didactic and comprehensive view of the theme, with updated and relevant concepts on the subject. This book was organized from researchers to researchers with the aim of spreading the fascinating area of molecular modeling by homology.
