About the book
Bioinformatics: Databases and Algorithms has two features that distinguish it from others in this genre. First, it seeks to explain some of the basic algorithms in bioinformatics to readers who have little exposure to computer science and mathematics. Second, it deals with structural bioinformatics in greater depth than most other books. The emphasis of this book is on algorithms, though databases have not been entirely neglected, and they have a whole chapter to themselves. Also much attention is given to structural bioinformatics.
In the hierarchy of textbooks, it falls between a very elementary introduction to the subject, and an advanced monograph on the topic, and serves as a bridge between the two.
Detailed Descriptions of methods of bio molecular sequence and structure analyses of interest to students and practitioners of bioinformatics both in the corporate and academic sectors • Detailed explanations of many of the crucial algorithms, making them intelligible to those without any background in computer science Attention to Structural bioinformatics
