BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool) is the most important bioinformatics software package available. Used by research biologists, BLAST is a set of similarity search programs that explore all of the available sequence databases for protein or DNA. BLAST will give biologists, computational biology students, and bioinformatics professionals a clear understanding of this program. This book shows how to get specific ideas with BLAST, and how to use the software to interpret the results. Students of computational biology will be able to understand the theory and practice of BLAST, even if they are moving from another field of science. This book is the only comprehensive reference with detailed, accurate information on optimizing BLAST searches for high-throughput sequence analysis.
Other O'Reilly books on bioinformatics include Developing Bioinformatics Computer Skills, Beginning Perl for Bioinformatics, and Mastering Perl for Bioinformatics.
