techniques for their implementation and application in computer systems.
This new book presents new approaches and methods to knowledge sharing, brain mapping, data
integration, data storage, managing an organization's business process and domain data, new

aid in a software engineering at the university level. The book also features a review of social
software engineering metrics, methods for processing business information, and using Pegasys
to create and manage sequence analysis workflows in biology.
