I've looked at many of the bioinformatics books available, and apart from this one none has quite the right balance for me. I don't just want to learn how to use the available programs as black boxes, but I also don't want a long and difficult mathematical derivation that doesn't connect to what needs to be done in practice. This book is the best at trying to cover both aspects of the subject. Furthermore, they don't just show a nice working example, but illustrate what happens when things go wrong. After reading the chapters on a topic I now feel ready to delve into the latest papers and I also feel much more confident about analysing my data. A great book!

Good item, good delivery, good printing. Though it's a paperback edition, liked the colored printing, almost like original.
The paper is very thin, but it's not a problem.
