Format: Paperback
This is a great book, I am very satisfied with it.

In fact, this book combines the most popular tools in bioinformatics:Perl, R and MySQL.

Some of us may be expert for one or two of these tools. But how to systemically to use them together, this book gives answers.

It aslo gives direction of how to go further if you want to master one of these tools.

Plus,it has a lot of practical examples which you can easily transform for your own work.

And I must say the authors are very responsibe. They answered my questions promptly and in details. I really apprecitate this.

Thank you.

I have formal education in Bioinformatics, however applied Bioinformatics is somewhat different. This book is a great stepping stone for those who want to work as Bioinformatics analysts, developers etc.

This is a very nice bioinformatics book. Concise and touching the point. Covers the very basic and practical skills on developing computational skills on biological question. After reading this book, I'm almost equipped the right tools, skills and directionality for practical research problems and more thoughtful organizations on my database. Highly recommend for everyone!
