"...ideal both for biologists who want to master the application of bioinformatics to real-world problems and for computer scientists who need to understand the biological questions that motivate algorithms." (Quarterly Review of Biology, March-May 2005)
"…this appears to be an excellent textbook for graduate students and upper level undergraduate students." (Annals of Biomedical Engineering, July 2004, 32, 7)
"…highly recommended for academic and medical libraries, and for researchers as an introduction and reference…" (E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 4)
“...an intriguing work targeted toward biologists wanting to solve problems...provides a compendium of many biological insights and breakthroughs and will be a useful resource...highly recommended.” (Choice, Vol. 41, No. 7, March 2004)--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"I would not hesitate for a moment to propose Jonathan Pevsner’s new book as a standard course for biologists who need a serious, practical knowledge of modern bioinformatics. Dr. Pevsner does a masterful job at presenting virtually every major topic in bioinformatics and computational genomics, from the basics of sequence analysis, to microarray data classification, accurately and at a considerable level of detail but without any complex mathematics. In addition to being an extremely useful textbook, Pevsner’s book is a very nice read, due in large part, to carefully constructed questions and suggestions for discussion, and wonderful historical vignettes. In short, a great bioinformatics book for biologists!"
