Building Bioinformatics Solutions: with Perl, R and MySQL

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice for starting to learn bioinformatics, 20 Feb. 2011
This book covers MYSQL, PERL, and R. It introduces each theme, and uses relevant bioinformatic examples. In the final chapters, it ties together all three softwares, and teaches to combine them. The book is a nice primer, and a great place to start if you have little experience in bioinformatics. The book doesn't really go in depth, and do not cover very advanced topics (but this is not the point of the book, and it points you to very nice resources). The authors use good examples from working with databases, and manipulating sequence.

I guess it would be perfect for an introductory course in Bioinformatics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for updating skills that should already be there, 20 Feb. 2011
This book covers topics I should already know by heart as an experimental biochemist/bioinformatic-guy. Unfortunately, I didn't, so I bought this book to get me up to speed, and to function as a reference. For these purposes, the book is great. It reads easily, and I actually found myself reluctant to put it down at some occasions. If you are working as a scientist, you need to know this stuff, and if you don't, this book is the place to start.
