The ideal text for biologists encountering bioinformatics for the first time, assuming no prior knowledge of programming.
Introduction to Bioinformatics provides friendly guidance and advice on how to use a range of computational methods and techniques for retrieving and analysing biological data.
The book is ideal for those new to the subject, with frequent self-test problems and exercises incorporated throughout the text to encourage self-directed learning. Review from previous edition An essential textbook for undergraduate students who are interested in a comprehensive introduction to the multidisciplinary field of bioinformatics.
I’m impressed with the breadth AND depth achieved in what is a reasonably compact introduchion. There are lots of quite innovative features which support the pedagogical delivery of the material.
A very good introductory textbook in bioinformatics. It is well-structured and nicely laid out.
There are numerous examples and problems attached to each chapter, including the novel Weblems. Online resource centre The Online Resource Centre features the leek materials: For lecturers password protected: Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford.

Imtroduction About the Author s Table of Contents Reviews Additional Resources Description Introduction to Bioinformatics provides friendly guidance and advice on how to use a range of computational methods and techniques for retrieving and analysing biological data. Aimed primarily at a biological audience, it is ideal for those without detailed prior knowledge of programming who are encountering bioinformatics for the first time.
Frequent examples, self-test questions, problems, and exercises are incorporated throughout the text to encourage self-directed learning. Emphasises the practical applications of the subject to a wide range of disciplines, such as molecular biology, medicine, forensic science and anthropology. Invaluable information retrieval techniques and data calculations are covered to enable the reader to carry out their own research on the Web.
The Online Resource Centre includes data sets and Web-based problems, alongside guidance for answering the problems and exercises in the book.

New to bioinformahics edition The ‘Weblems’ Web-based problems are now online to enable immediate access to hyperlinked materials and are tied more closely to specific areas of the text.
Two new chapters have been written to increase the coverage of metabolic pathways and gene expression and regulation, in order to reflect the recent growth of interest in these areas. Extended coverage of genomics reflects the increasing cross-over between the disciplines of bioinformatics and genomics.
Increased emphasis is placed on the exciting potential of bioinformatics to enable future advances in our understanding of life on earth.
