Product description


'The readers of this book will be serious programmers, but of course anybody working in bio-computing will find the book of immense practical, scientific and commercial importance … you should get the book, whether you want to do some string processing, fundamental computing research, or want to impress a biotech firm.' Harold Thimbleby, The Times Higher Education Supplement

'… could well be used as the basis for a graduate-level course, particularly as it contains over 400 exercises to reinforce presented material and to develop further topics. It is recommended most highly.' P. Gibbons, Zentralblatt für Mathematik

Book Description

String processing is an important tool in processing electronically stored text and in analysing DNA sequence data. This book describes string problems in computer science and in molecular biology, and the algorithms developed to solve them. It is a reference for computer scientists and computer-oriented professionals in biology and a text for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses on string algorithms and on computational biology.
