Written by a pioneer of the use of bioinformatics in research, the second edition of Introduction to Bioinformatics introduces the student to the power of bioinformatics as a set of scientific tools. Retaining and enhancing the rich pedagogy and lucid presentation of the first edition, this new edition explains how to access the data archives of genomes and proteins, and the kind of questions these data and tools can answer. It also discusses how to make inferences from the data archives, how to make connections among them, and how to derive useful and interesting predictions. The book is accompanied by a fully integrated companion website.

Description from 1st Edition:
Introduction to Bioinformatics by Arthur Lesk is a timely and much-needed textbook which provides an accessible and thorough introduction to a subject which is becoming a fundamental part of biological science today. As a pioneer of the use of bioinformatics techniques in research, Dr Lesk brings unrivalled experience and expertise to the study of this field. The aim of the book is to generate an understanding of the biological background of bioinformatics, and to integrate this with an introduction to the use of computational skills. Without describing computer science or sophisticated programming skills in detail, the book supports and encourages the application of the many powerful computational tools of bioinformatics in a way that is both relevant to and stimulating for the reader.

The book contains numerous problems and innovative Weblems (for Web-based Problems) to encourage students to engage with the subject and with the accompanying web site and to develop a working understanding and appreciation of the power of bioinformatics as a research tool.

Sorry for being gone for the past two weeks. I was experiencing problems with my computer. Luckily everything is working now and I did not lose anything… including ebooks! I'll start posting some the requests people asked of me. Also as you may notice, I am boycotting rapidshare. I will NOT be using rapidshare links for any posts. They decided to close my account (which I had paid for!) for no reason. So now I lost money, all my RS points, and links to my files that I uploaded. So if anyone wants to join me and boycott the greedy monopoly… all is welcome!

As always I hope you enjoy this book. Please reply with any request for books similar to this one. Also please recommend any additional books related to this topic.
