Data Analytics for Pandemics: A COVID-19 Case Study
by Gitanjali Rahul Shinde
Epidemic trend analysis, timeline progression, prediction, and recommendation are critical for initiating effective public health control strategies, and AI and data analytics play an important role in epidemiology, diagnostic, and clinical fronts. The focus of this book is data analytics for COVID-19, which includes an overview of COVID-19 in terms of epidemic/pandemic, data processing and knowledge extraction. Data sources, storage and platforms are discussed along with discussions on data models, their performance, different big data techniques, tools and technologies. This book also addresses the challenges in applying analytics to pandemic scenarios, case studies and control strategies. Aimed at Data Analysts, Epidemiologists and associated researchers, this book:
- discusses challenges of AI model for big data analytics in pandemic scenarios;
- explains how different big data analytics techniques can be implemented;
- provides a set of recommendations to minimize infection rate of COVID-19;
- summarizes various techniques of data processing and knowledge extraction;
- enables users to understand big data analytics techniques required for prediction purposes.

Antimalarial Agents: Design and Mechanism of Action
Graham L. Patrick
Antimalarial Agents: Design and Mechanism of Action seeks to support medicinal chemists in their work toward antimalarial solutions, providing practical guidance on past and current developments and highlighting promising leads for the future. Malaria is a deadly disease which threatens half of the world’s population. Advances over several decades have seen vast improvements in the eff ectiveness of both preventative measures and treatments, but the rapid adaptability of the disease means that the ongoing search for improved and novel antimalarial drugs is essential. Beginning with a historical overview of malaria and antimalarial research, this book goes on to describe the biological aspects of malaria, highlighting the lifecycle of the parasite responsible for malaria, the problem of resistance, genetic mapping of the parasite’s genome, established drug targets, and potential drug targets for the future. This sets the scene for the following chapters which provide a detailed study of the medicinal chemistry of antimalarial agents, with a focus on the design of antimalarial drugs. Drawing on the knowledge of its experienced authors, and coupling historic research with current fi ndings to provide a full picture of both past and current milestones, Antimalarial Agents: Design and Mechanism of Action is a comprehensive yet accessible guide for all those involved in the design, development, and administration of antimalarial drugs, including student academic researchers, medicinal chemists, malaria researchers, and pharmaceutical scientists.
- Consolidates both past and current developments in the discovery and design of antimalarial drugs
- Presents content in a style that is both thorough and engaging, providing a supportive and guiding reference to students and researchers from interdisciplinary backgrounds
- Highlights drug targets currently considered to be the most promising for future therapies, and the classes of compounds that are currently being studied and perfected
