As someone with a foot in both worlds (biology and programming) I found this book extremely helpful when starting in a new field of research (genomics). The topics covered here are interesting and relevant, and the literature cited is very current, making this book ideal for anyone starting study in this field. I also thought the approach to introducing Perl programming was excellent (by teaching it from an applied route). I do not understand why the previous post only gave this book one star. I have already recommended this book to my student.
