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 
       bioinformatics problems"--
