Buy
"In this book, Andy Baxevanis and Francis Ouellette . . . have undertaken the difficult task of organizing the knowledge in this field in a logical progression and presenting it in a digestible form. And they have done an excellent job. This fine text will make a major impact on biological research and, in turn, on progress in biomedicine. We are all in their debt."–Eric Lander from the Foreword

Reviews from the First Edition

"...provides a broad overview of the basic tools for sequence analysis ... For biologists approaching this subject for the first time, it will be a very useful handbook to keep on the shelf after the first reading, close to the computer."–Nature Structural Biology

"...should be in the personal library of any biologist who uses the Internet for the analysis of DNA and protein sequence data." –Science

"...a wonderful primer designed to navigate the novice through the intricacies of in scripto analysis ... The accomplished gene searcher will also find this book a useful addition to their library ... an excellent reference to the principles of bioinformatics."–Trends in Biochemical Sciences

This new edition of the highly successful Bioinformatics: A Practical Guide to the Analysis of Genes and Proteins provides a sound foundation of basic concepts, with practical discussions and comparisons of both computational tools and databases relevant to biological research.

Equipping biologists with the modern tools necessary to solve practical problems in sequence data analysis, the Second Edition covers the broad spectrum of topics in bioinformatics, ranging from Internet concepts to predictive algorithms used on sequence, structure, and expression data. With chapters written by experts in the field, this up-to-date reference thoroughly covers vital concepts and is appropriate for both the novice and the experienced practitioner. Written in clear, simple language, the book is accessible to users without an advanced mathematical or computer science background. This new edition includes:

  • All new end-of-chapter Web resources, bibliographies, and problem sets
  • Accompanying Web site containing the answers to the problems, as well as links to relevant Web resources
  • New coverage of comparative genomics, large-scale genome analysis, sequence assembly, and expressed sequence tags
  • A glossary of commonly used terms in bioinformatics and genomics

Bioinformatics: A Practical Guide to the Analysis of Genes and Proteins, Second Edition is essential reading for researchers, instructors, and students of all levels in molecular biology and bioinformatics, as well as for investigators involved in genomics, positional cloning, clinical research, and computational biology.

About the Author

Andy Baxevanis is the Associate Director for Intramural Research and the Director, Computational Genomics, at the National Human Genome Research Institute, National Institutes of Health. He received his B.S. in biological sciences from Cornell University in 1984 and his Ph.D. in the Department of Biology at The Johns Hopkins University in 1991. His research focuses on protein structure-function relationships, positional cloning, and the development of new methods for the analysis of gene expression data. His accomplishments have been recognized by the Bodossaki Foundation in Greece, who awarded him their 1999 Academic Prize in Medicine and Biology.

Francis Ouellette is Director of the Bioinformatics Core Facility at the Center for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics, The University of British Columbia, and the Director of Bioinformatics for the Canadian Genetic Diseases Network. He previously held the position of GenBank Coordinator for the National Center for Biotechnology Information at the National Institutes of Health. He earned his B.Sc. in the Department of Biology at McGill University in 1991, and is the founder and moderator of bionet.molbio.yeast, a Usenet discussion forum for the yeast genomics community.

Beginning Android 4 Application Development
Beginning Android 4 Application Development
I FIRST STARTED PLAYING WITH THE ANDROID SDK before it was offi cially released as version 1.0. Back then, the tools were unpolished, the APIs in the SDK were unstable, and the documentation was sparse. Fast-forward three and a half years, Android is now a formidable mobile operating system, with a following no less impressive than...
Physics Modeling for Game Programmers
Physics Modeling for Game Programmers
Programmers who want to include 3D math and physics in a game have to wade through physics textbooks and dreary tomes on linear algebra and group theory, only to find that the material is too abstract to be used directly in their games. This book gives readers the skills they want and need to incorporate real physics into their games. As they work...
