It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide. A vast amount of biological information about a wide range of species has become available in recent years as technological advances have significantly reduced the time it takes to sequence a genome or determine a novel protein structure. The aim of the book is to generate an understanding of the biological background 20008 bioinformatics, and to integrate this with an introduction to the useof computational skills.
Written for students without a detailed prior knowledge of programming, this book is the perfect introduction to the field of bioinformatics, providing friendly guidance and advice on how to use various methods and techniques.
The increase in the reliance upon bioinformatics in current research has made it essential fortraining in these skills to become an integral part of current science education.
Furthermore, frequent examples, self-test questions, problems, and exercises are incorporated throughout the text to encourage self-directed learning. This text describes how bioinformatics can be used as a powerful set of tools for retrieving and analysing this biological data, and how bioinformatics can be applied to a wide range of disciplines such as molecular biology, medicine, biotechnology, forensic science and anthropology.
