Book Description

1 Nov 2002 1859960545 978-1859960547
Bioinformatics, the use of computers to address biological questions, has become an essential tool in biological research. It is one of the critical keys needed to unlock the information encoded in the flood of data generated by genome, protein structure, transcriptome and proteome research.
Bioinformatics: Genes, Proteins & Computers covers both the more traditional approaches to bioinformatics, including gene and protein sequence analysis and structure prediction, and more recent technologies such as datamining of transcriptomic and proteomic data to provide insights on cellular mechanisms and the causes of disease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable resource for students and researchers 22 Mar 2004
As an MSc Bioinformatics student, this book proves to be invaluable in understanding my course. Covering topics from all fields of Bioinformatics, this book goes deep into the details necessary for any serious researcher or student. This would be especially useful to someone coming from a computing background; quickly covering the biology required and moving into how this can be integrated with technology to complete the amalgumation of these two sciences. This book is both informative and the perfect resource for quick reference to details when they slip your mind. With such an easy to understand layout, this book is the end to my worries of understanding both sciences to such a high level. This was the best use of my limited student money I have ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books on the subject 16 May 2007
I teach bioinformatics, and have a special interest in protein structure. In most texts, the two things barely overlap. In this book, proteins, and especially their structures, take centre stage, in contrast to the 'protein sequence as a data string' view of the world so often taken. This is hardly a surprise, given the authors, but it is a viewpoint I whole-heartedly endorse. Putting the approach to the subject aside, the book is excellent in its own right. Concise, lucid coverage, unified by a set of excellent diagrams and illustrations. Criticisms would be lack of colour throughout, the relatively small format and the lack of web support, but these are minor quibbles.
