An invaluable aid, this book has much to offer the novice bioinformaticist and should be strongly considered by those who are new to the field. -- Darryl Nishamura, Biotech Software & Internet report, Vol 2 No 5, 2001
Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this book to Computer Scientists, Biologists, and even people already involved in Bioinformatics. -- Brandon King, Cerritos Linux Users Group, April 2002
Well written, properly organized, and a worthwhile investment for those interested in the field from a purely academic sense or applied. -- Bryan William Jones, Applelust.com, August 2002
