&i;Bioinformatics: A Practical Approach&o; presents quick and efficient applications through step-by-step instructions and examples. With an overview in each chapter, this book demonstrates how to screen out genes of interest from genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and other integrative databases and shows how to retrieve single nucleotide polymorphism and haploytype data. The book also describes various programs and tools in DNA and protein sequence analysis and introduces basic biocomputing tools. Mice database mining is also covered. Along with sample datasets and a list of useful websites and databases, this resource features contributions from leading international experts in the field.
