Bioinformatics, Biocomputing and Perl by Michael Moorhouse and Paul Barry

An introduction to Bioinformatics Computing Skills and Practice

"Many Perl chapters ... are excellent ... comprehensive and yet easy to read ... interesting and enjoyable ... the overall product ... serves well its purpose as an introductory textbook and a resource of reference materials for bioinformaticians.", Artem R Cherhasov, BioMedical Engineering OnLine.

" ... is one of the better answers to ... what to teach biologists about Bioinformatics ... Books about bioinformatics ... try to explain what bioinformatics is ... but very few so far have tried to take bioinformatics to budding biologists. Here we have a book that makes it easy.", Heikki Lehväslaiho, EBI Staff Scientist and core developer of BioPerl.

" ..such a helpful and relevant book ... I am following [an] MSc distance learning course in Bioinformatics ... I would have been at a complete loss without your book!" Susan Tzotzos MSc, PhD, Vienna, Austria
