Reviews of the Second Edition
"In this book, Andy Baxevanis and Francis Ouellette . . . haveundertaken the difficult task of organizing the knowledge in thisfield in a logical progression and presenting it in a digestibleform. And they have done an excellent job. This fine text will makea major impact on biological research and, in turn, on progress inbiomedicine. We are all in their debt."
--Eric Lander, from the Foreword to the Second Edition
"The editors and the chapter authors of this book are to beapplauded for providing biologists with lucid and comprehensivedescriptions of essential topics in bioinformatics. This book iseasy to read, highly informative, and certainly timely. It is mosthighly recommended for students and for established investigatorsalike, for anyone who needs to know how to access and use theinformation derived in and from genomic sequencing projects."
--Trends in Genetics
"It is an excellent general bioinformatics text and reference,perhaps even the best currently available . . . Congratulations tothe authors, editors, and publisher for producing a weighty,authoritative, readable, and attractive book."
--Briefings in Bioinformatics
"This book, written by the top scientists in the field ofbioinformatics, is the perfect choice for every molecular biologylaboratory."
--The Quarterly Review of Biology
This fully revised version of a world-renowned bestseller providesreaders with a practical guide covering the full scope of keyconcepts in bioinformatics, from databases to predictive andcomparative algorithms. Using relevant biological examples, thebook provides background on and strategies for using many of themost powerful and commonly used computational approaches forbiological discovery. This Third Edition reinforces key conceptsthat have stood the test of time while making the reader aware ofnew and important developments in this fast-moving field. With anew full-color and enlarged page design, Bioinformatics, ThirdEdition offers the most readable, up-to-date, and thoroughintroduction to the field for biologists.
This new edition features:
* New chapters on genomic databases, predictive methods using RNAsequences, sequence polymorphisms, protein structure prediction,intermolecular interactions, and proteomic approaches for proteinidentification
* Detailed worked examples illustrating the strategic use of theconcepts presented in each chapter, along with a collection ofexpanded,more rigorous problem sets suitable for classroomuse
* Special topic boxes and appendices highlighting experimentalstrategies and advanced concepts
* Annotated reference lists, comprehensive lists of relevant Webresources, and an extensive glossary of commonly used terms inbioinformatics, genomics, and proteomics
Bioinformatics, Third Edition is essential reading for researchers,instructors, and students of all levels in molecular biology andbioinformatics, as well as for investigators involved in genomics,clinical research, proteomics, and computational biology.
