About this book

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.


Preface; 1. Bibliographic databases; 2. Sequence databases and analysis sites; 3. Medical genetic resources in the genome era; 4. Agricultural Biotechnology; 5.

Laboratory web sites: how to disseminate information, make friends and influence people; 9. Introduction to Macromolecular Visualization; 10. Biological Applications of Virtual Reality; 11. Web scripting for Molecular Biologists: an Introduction to PERL and XML
