9780199277872: Introduction to Bioinformatics

Written by a pioneer of the use of bioinformatics in research, the second edition of Introduction to Bioinformatics introduces the student to the power of bioinformatics as a set of scientific tools. Retaining and enhancing the rich pedagogy and lucid presentation of the first edition, this new edition explains how to access the data archives of genomes and proteins, and the kind of questions these data and tools can answer. It also discusses how to make inferences from the data archives, how to make connections among them, and how to derive useful and interesting predictions. The book is accompanied by a fully integrated companion website.

About the Author:

Dr Arthur Lesk, Senior Research Associate, Department of Haematology, University of Cambridge, UK

Review:

"Arthur Lesk's excellent introductory overview puts in a strong bid to be the textbook for bioinformatics. In engaging prose, he ably guides the reader through the basics of the subject, while setting the work clearly in its scientific context."..."Overall, this is an excellant textbook and the best news is that it is very sensibly priced. This book will appear near the top of reading lists almost wherever bioinformatics is taught." The Royal Society of Chemistry 2002.

'This book is most suitable for readers who are developing an interest in genetics and proteomics. This would include undergraduates who have done some basic molecular biology at the university level. Alternatively, any computer scientist with an enthusiam for applying their computer knowledge to solve biological problems would find this book useful'. Chemical Educator, Vol.9, No.2, 2004
