The book is very accessible for clearly and concisely describing the challenging algorithms it presents.
The study can include formal language theory, Gibbs sampling and other non-deterministic optimizations, and probability-based techniques like Markov models.
It does however give the reader an overview of the practical application of these algorithms to the subject.

Without doubt this book is the best book about string algorithms, and sometime far beyond that. It will definitely change the way of your thinking.Published on January 27, 2011 by Majid
Don't get thrown off by the 'bio' in the title. I use it for computer security - signature based intrusion detection.
This is a very dense book for the serious. Read more
This book is absolutely excellent. Gusfield walks the reader from simple concepts in string matching through advanced in a way that I found very easy to follow. Read morePublished on March 7, 2008 by David Kelley
A well written text book with an obvious bias to biological application, but maybe most useful for its clear explanation and rigour of string algorithms.Published on October 18, 2007 by Thomas J. E. Schwarz
If you haven't read this book, you don't know biological string matching. The book's focus is clearly on string algorithms, but the author gives good biological significance to the... Read morePublished on August 17, 2003 by wiredweird
