Evolutionary Bioinformatics

Evolutionary Bioinformatics goals to make the "new" information-based (rather than gene-based) bioinformatics intelligible either to the "bio" humans and the "info" humans. Books on bioinformatics have typically served gene-hunters, and biologists who desire to build relations timber displaying tidy strains of descent.

4) would enable the full time course of drug response to be estimated after any dose. It could also be used to estimate the dose and dosing interval to produce optimum response. If these relationships are identified early in the course of drug development, they can be used to determine optimum doses for clinical trials. This in turn will increase the efficiency of the trials, reduce the time for drug development, and decrease the price of these highly costly studies. The expressions can also be used to simulate response data for situations not yet studied clinically.

A frequent characteristic of these plots is that whereas 100% of patients experience toxicity if concentrations are high enough, fewer than 100% of patients experience therapeutic effects even at high concentrations. Patients who do not respond therapeutically even to high concentrations are referred to as nonresponders. This plot is then used to estimate a drug’s therapeutic range. The MEC and MTC are usually chosen at concentrations where a high percentage of patients experience a therapeutic effect and a small percentage of patients experience toxicity, respectively.

Once in the circulatory system, the drug has to pass through the liver, which a major organ of drug elimination. The absorbed drug may undergo elimination by metabolism during its first pass through the liver. After the liver the drug is taken to the heart, which pumps the drug throughout the entire circulatory system. At this point the drug has been absorbed. The rate and extent of absorption of a drug are very important determinants of the early plasma concentrations of a drug. Rapid rates of absorption will promote high early plasma concentrations.
