Unlike most books that discuss online molecular biology databases which have a bioinformatics bent and some emphasis on algorithms, this volume caters to bench scientists who have a serious interest in developing skills in the use of the Internet to support their work. Sansom and Horton provide a broad introduction to using Internet-based computing resources to support research in molecular biology. After surveying the core databases and other online resources, the focus shifts to tools and techniques for exploiting and authoring Internet-distributed information. Later chapters provide detailed examples of how technologies such as molecular visualisation, VRML and XSLT can be applied to biological problems.
