About this book

Bioinformatics: Methods Express is unique. It is a book on bioinformatics that makes sense to non-bioinformaticians. It allows researchers who are not bioinformatics specialists to find answers to fundamental bioinformatics questions which they need to pursue their work successfully. It couples accessible theoretical background information with the explicit protocols that non-bioinformaticians need in order to understand what to do - and how to avoid common pitfalls. "Bioinformatics: Methods Express" is a comprehensive but readily-accessible research guide; every chapter discusses the merits and limitations of various bioinformatics approaches and then provides clear advice and unambiguous protocols.
