About this book

This comprehensive book details the application of current computational methods to DNA and protein science. Topics are covered in depth with a practical approach that enables biologists to perform analyses and comparisons of sequence data and to determine functional and structural characteristics of proteins. In particular the book aims to provide an understanding of ways in which such analyses and comparisons are performed in order to help the scientist to be more effective in performing such tasks and intercepting the results.
