About this book

The application of computational methods to DNA and protein science is a new and exciting development in biology and this is a comprehensive introduction to this emerging field of study. It is written for any biologist who wants to understand methods of sequence and structure analysis and how the necessary computer programs work. Sequence alignment, structure prediction, phylogenetic and gene prediction, database searching and genome analysis are clearly explained and amply illustrated. The second edition contains new chapters on statistical analysis of sequence alignments, computer programming for bioinformatics, and data management and mining.
