"...an important summary of the state of the art in pattern matching and an indicator of the importance biological problems have assumed among many researchers. It will hopefully encourage them to question the importance of the problems they endeavor to solve." SIGACT News
"The book will be profitable both for graduate students in computer science and for biologists with a good background in programming." Mathematical Reviews
"One often encounters in this book thought-provoking quotes relating to the importance of sequence analysis...Also found in the text are interesting biological examples of sequence analysis..." Cell
Traditionally an area of study in computer science, string algorithms have, in recent years, become an increasingly important part of biology, particularly genetics. This volume is a comprehensive look at computer algorithms for string processing. In addition to pure computer science, Gusfield adds extensive discussions on biological problems that are cast as string problems and on methods developed to solve them. This text emphasizes the fundamental ideas and techniques central to today's applications. New approaches to this complex material simplify methods that up to now have been for the specialist alone. With over 400 exercises to reinforce the material and develop additional topics, the book is suitable as a text for graduate or advanced undergraduate students in computer science, computational biology, or bio-informatics.
Provides a rigorous treatment of algorithms that operate on character strings and sequences. Covers a wide spectrum of string algorithms from classical computer science to modern molecular biology, when possible, integrating those two fields. DLC: Computer algorithms.

The Mafia Encyclopedia
Organized crime is the greatest criminal phenomenon of our time. From Al Capone, who boldly claimed his bootlegging activities were a public service, to John Gotti, the "Teflon don" who died in prison, these criminals have garnered headlines and captured the public imagination with their flamboyant lifestyles and colorful attitudes....
Photoshop CS3 for Screen Printers (Wordware Applications Library) There are between 20,000 and 30,000 registered screen printing companies in the U.S. and many thousands more worldwide. Additionally, there are thousands of companies that are run from backyards, garages, and storage facilities. All of these screen printing companies have one thing in common—they all use some type of graphics program to...
