In addition, it would be excellent if the next edition includes some coverage of approaches to explore the results of high-throughput technologies, in particular microarray and next-generation sequencing; protein and DNA structural analysis; gene finding methods and gene ontology enrichment analysis.
Biological networks uncover evolution, disease, and gene functions Natasa Przulj; Exceptional customer service Get specialist help and advice. This book, Bioinformatics for Biologiststakes a first, correct, step by providing biologists with an introduction to the methods and algorithms of bioinformatics, while assuming minimal knowledge in computer science.

Intuitive explanations promote deep understanding, using little mathematical formalism. Rather than just presenting tools, the authors — each a leading scientist — engage the students’ problem-solving skills, preparing them to meet the computational challenges of their life science gioinformatics.
Reconstructing the history of large-scale genomic changes: Chapter 11 reviews large-scale genome rearrangements, and how these rearrangements are used in construction of phylogenetic trees. What is noteworthy, aside from the wide angle of the snapshot of today’s bioinformatics, something the editors promise to update in future editions, is the innovative and pevzzner pedagogical emphasis apparent throughout [ Biological naivete in thinking and writing plagues bioinformatics, and Pevzner and Shamir’s Bioinformatics for Pevsner offers a wonderful therapy for that condition as well as an effective palliative for life science students’ math phobias.
