From the reviews (of the German edition):
The book presents a fundamental and practical treatment of all important aspects. (…) The text is well written and easy to understand. It stimulates to go on reading to the end of each chapter and to work on the "questions".
(Biospektrum Oct. 2004)
So far, sciences students have no systematic introduction available into the structure of data bases and the intelligently structured search for information. The new text book of Selzer, Marhöfer and Rohwer here fills this gap. The book can be thoroughly recommended to students and instructors in the sciences and molecular medicine. It also can be very useful for biocomputering courses being established at a growing number of universities.
(Biologen heute 5.2003)
Particularly useful are the description of the existing, important data bases on the internet, their usage, and the handling and analysis of the data gained as well as their application in bioinformatics.

Top Customer Reviews
This book has concise and colourful figures which engage the reader when exemplifying key examples. This book has been useful for my course in Level 3 Pathogen Biology and will be helpful for my upcoming Senior Honours Microbiology course. It explores the applications of BLAST for nucleotide and protein sequence searching which is a fundamental tool for examining the roles of genes and proteins in pathogenic microorganisms.
I have very few suggestions as to how this book could be improved. I think that this book should be used in conjunction with a molecular biology textbook to reinforce key principles. References provided in the book should also be consulted in addition to academic papers to examine examples. This book offers a unique insight into applying bioinformatics for research into pathogen biology. I strongly recommend this book for any student at undergraduate or postgraduate level studying biomedical and life sciences. (Alan Gordon Hall, University of Glasgow)
