Product description


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


Bioinformatics - the application of computational and analytical methods to biological problems - is a rapidly evolving scientific discipline. Genome sequencing projects are producing vast amounts of biological data for many different organisms, and, increasingly, storing these data in public databases. Such biological databases are growing exponentially, along with the biological literature. It is impossible for even the most zealous researcher to stay on top of necessary information in the field without the aid of computer-based tools. Bioinformatics is all about building these tools. "Developing Bioinformatics Computer Skills" is for scientists and students who are learning computational approaches to biology for the first time, as well as for experienced biology researchers who are just starting to use computers to handle their data. The book covers the Unix file system, building tools and databases for bioinformatics, computational approaches to biological problems, an introduction to Perl for bioinformatics, data mining, and data visualization.

The book aims to help biologists develop a structured approach to biological data as well as the tools they'll need to analyze the data.
