This fully revised Third Edition of a world-renowned classic provides a practical guide covering the full scope of key concepts in bioinformatics, from databases to predictive and comparative algorithms. With a new full-colour, enlarged page design, this edition offers the most readable, up-to-date, and thorough introduction to the field for biologists. All new features include special boxes, enhanced use of real examples, and expanded problem sets with answers provided on the book's dedicated Web site (www.wiley.com/bioinformatics).
