About this book

Describes the different types of databases, how to use a specific database to find a sequence that you need, and how to analyze the data to compare it with your own work.

Read the book from cover to cover... is rewarding and provides one with a feel for the state of the art in relation to data mining from genetics databases... I would highly recommend the book to anyone currently doing research in the biological sciences and molecular or genetic science in particular. Today's Life Science (2000) "...Martin Bishop has done a nice job assembling specialists in their fields who can explain the rationale, strenths, and weaknesses of many types of analysis used in bioinformatics... Overall, this would be a good book for use as an introductory bioinformatics text or for anyone who has an interest in learning various approaches to both eukaryotic and prokaryotic genome analysis... --Lynn Jablonski, ASM News
