The book aims at both biology- and computation-oriented audiences and is designed as a number of ‘crash-courses’ quickly updating the reader on the basics of bioinformatics.
There are also certain aspects, in which the book could befurther improved. Bioinformatics Biocomputing and Perl.
An introduction to the important Bioperl Project concludes this chapter and rounds off the book. An essential textbook for teaching how to apply Perl in the development of Web databases and automating bioinformatics tasks Focuses on learning Perl as a tool then applying it to bioinformatics problems Teaches readers to create their own customized programs to address specific tasks and to manage complex data structures within those programs Each chapter includes an example illustrating the use of material covered in that chapter and exercises to practise Features maxims and technical notes for easy reference.
