Beginning Perl for Bioinformatics, 9780596000806 (0596000804), O'Reilly, 2001
With its highly developed capacity to detect patterns in data, Perl has become one of the most popular languages for biological data analysis. But if you're a biologist with little or no programming experience, starting out in Perl can be a challenge. Many biologists have a difficult time learning how to apply the language to bioinformatics. The most popular Perl programming books are often too theoretical and too focused on computer science for a non-programming biologist who needs to solve very specific problems.

"Beginning Perl for Bioinformatics" is designed to get you quickly over the Perl language barrier by approaching programming as an important new laboratory skill, revealing Perl programs and techniques that are immediately useful in the lab. Each chapter focuses on solving a particular bioinformatics problem or class of problems, starting with the simplest and increasing in complexity as the book progresses. Each chapter includes programming exercises and teaches bioinformatics by showing and modifying programs that deal with various kinds of practical biological problems. By the end of the book you'll have a solid understanding of Perl basics, a collection of programs for such tasks as parsing BLAST and GenBank, and the skills to take on more advanced bioinformatics programming. Some of the later chapters focus in greater detail on specific bioinformatics topics. This book is suitable for use as a classroom textbook, for self-study, and as a reference.

Designed to get you quickly over the Perl language barrier by approaching programming as an important new laboratory skill revealing Perl programs and techniques that are immediately useful in the lab. Softcover.

Emergent Problems in Nonlinear Systems and Control (Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences)

Papers in this collection partly represent the set of talks that were presented at Texas Tech University on the occasion of Daya’s memorial workshop in the year 2007. Daya had a varied interest in the field of Dynamics and Control Theory and the papers bring out the essence of his involvement in these activities. He also had a large number...

Thin Film Optical Filters, Third Edition
Thin Film Optical Filters, Third Edition
It is obvious from the details of his career that Angus knows more about optical coatings, both in terms of design and of fabrication, than most of us put together. It is therefore quite expected that I feel free to state that, in my opinion, this book is a necessity, rather on par with having the use of a coating facility, a good coating program,...
