• Introduction to Bioinformatics

    International, by T K Attwood & D J Parry-Smith

    Bioinformatics, the application of computers in biological sciences and especially analysis of biological sequence data, is becoming an essential tool in molecular biology as genome projects generate vast quantities of data. With new sequences being added to DNA databases, on average, once a minute, there is a pressing need to convert this information into biochemical and biophysical knowledge by deciphering the structural, functional and evolutionary clues encoded in the language of biological sequences.

  • Bioinformatics: Sequence and Genome Analysis

    International, by David W. Mount

    Computational analysis of the data generated by genome sequencing, proteomics, and array-based technologies is critically important. Bioinformatics: Sequence and Genome Analysis provides comprehensive instruction in computational methods for analyzing DNA, RNA, and protein data, with explanations of the underlying algorithms, the advantages and limitations of each method, and strategies for their application to biological problems.

  • Bioinformatics: Sequence, Structure and Databanks

    International, by Des Higgins & Willie Taylor

    This volume covers practical important topics in the analysis of protein sequences and structures. It includes comparing amino acid sequences to structures comparing structures to each other, searching information on entire protein families as well as searching with single sequences, how to use the Internet and how to set up and use the SRS molecular biology database management system.

  • Algorithms in bioinformatics

    International, by Benson, Gary; Page, Roderic

    This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 8th International Workshop on Algorithms in Bioinformatics, WABI 2008, held in Karlsruhe, Germany, in September 2008 as part of the ALGO 2008 meeting.The 32 revised full papers presented together with the abstract of a keynote talk were carefully reviewed and selected from 81 submissions.

  • Beginning PERL

    Software, by Simon Cozens

    Perl is an immensely popular scripting language that combines the best features of C, key UNIX utilities and a powerful use of regular expressions. It has a wide range of uses beyond simple text processing and is commonly used for web programming - creating and parsing CGI forms, validating HTML syntax and hyperlinks - as well as e-mail and Usenet news filtering. Perl is increasingly the system administrator's scripting language of choice and is used for file and directory manipulation, database access and a whole range of daily system operator chores.

  • Practical Bioinformatics

    International, by Janusz M. Bujnicki

    The book is unique in that it bridges the gap between bioinformaticists and molecular biologists, i.e. the developers and the users of computational methods for biological data analysis and in that it presents examples of practical applications of the bioinformatics tools in the "daily practice" of an experimental research scientist.

  • Python for bioinformatics

    International, by Sebastian Bassi

    Object Oriented Programming (OOP) is a very important paradigm in today programming landscape. The book Python for Bioinformatics has a whole chapter devoted to it. It even has a lot of examples, most of them related to Biology.

  • Microarray Bioinformatics

    Cambridge, by Dov Stekel

    DNA microarrays have revolutionized molecular biology and are becoming a standard tool in the field. Dov Stekels book is a comprehensive guide to the mathematics, statistics and computing required to use microarrays successfully. Unlike traditional molecular biology, the successful use of DNA microarrays requires the application of statistics and computing to design the arrays and experiments, and to analyze and manage the data. This book is written for researchers, clinicians and laboratory managers.
