520 "With the arrival of genomics and genome sequencing
projects, biology has been transformed into an incredibly
data-rich science. The vast amount of information
generated has made computational analysis critical and has
increased demand for skilled bioinformaticians. Designed
for biologists without previous programming experience,
this textbook provides a hands-on introduction to Unix,
Perl and other tools used in sequence bioinformatics.
Relevant biological topics are used throughout the book
and are combined with practical bioinformatics examples,
leading students through the process from biological
problem to computational solution. All of the Perl scripts,
sequence and database files used in the book are available
for download at the accompanying website, allowing the
reader to easily follow each example using their own
computer. Programming examples are kept at an introductory
level, avoiding complex mathematics that students often
find daunting. The book demonstrates that even simple
programs can provide powerful solutions to many complex
