Bioinformatics Biocomputing and Perl. The authors also provide helpful technical comments where necessary and offer practical exercises at the end of each chapter.
Several sections may be too advancedfor the beginner level such as Perl basics and databasedownloadingwhile others may contain too excessivedetails the Protein Databank section. BioPerl — a collection bioihformatics Perl modules specificallydesigned for several most common bioinformatics tasks. Several figures in the ‘biological’ sections are not very informative or readable such as Figure Bioinformatics Biocomputing and Perl Wiley; The section ‘Working with Perl’ presents an extended tutorial with practical tips and useful references for Perl beginners.
There are also certain aspects, in which the book could be further improved. Thebook is concluded with six appendices covering the Linuxbasics, Perl installation, operators, on-line support andsuggested reading materials which, in my mind, benefitthe book tremendously.

Review on ”Bioinformatics, Biocomputing and Perl” by Michael Moorhouse and Paul Barry
Working with Perl presents an extended tutorial introduction to programming through Perl, the premier programming technology of the bioinformatics community. Stein at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory[http: The book is concluded with six appendices covering the Linux basics, Perl installation, operators, on-line support and suggested reading materials which, in my mind, benefit the book tremendously. The popular MySQL database is used in all examples.
Each chapter contains a series of maxims designed to highlight key points and there are exercises to supplement and cement the introduced material. Thus, the overall product, the “Bioinformatics, Biocomput-ing and Perl”, serves well its purpose as an introductorytextbook and a resource of reference materials for bioin-formaticians. The book aims at both biology- and computation-oriented audiences and is designed as a number of ‘crash-courses’ quickly updating the reader on the basics of bioinformatics.
Bioinformatics Biocomputing and Perl. The authors alsoPublish with BioMed Central and every scientist can read your work free of charge”BioMed Central will be the most significant development for disseminating the results of biomedical research in our lifetime. The book would biointormatics benefitfrom color illustrations. Patterns, Patterns and More Patterns. XML — Extensible Markup Language — a popular standardfor documents containing structured information.
A very useful feature of the book is the use of maxims thathighlight key points throughout the text. Following this is ‘Working with Data’, whichfamiliarizes the reader with some public genomic andproteomic databases and discusses important subjects ofdatabase formats, non-redundancy, cross-referencing andprogrammable access, etc. Working with the Web presents a discussion of the Web-based technologies that ;erl the bioinformatics researcher to publish both data and bbioinformatics on the Internet.
The section also offers recent and relevant examples of BioPerl applications.
Bioinformatics, Biocomputing and Perl (Moorhouse)
The book aims at both biology- and computation-ori-ented audiences and is designed as a number of ‘crash-courses’ quickly updating the reader on the basics of bio-informatics. Include Metadata Specify width in pixels leave blank for auto-width: The rest is organized into four sec-tions consisting of 18 chapters elaborating on essentialbioinformatics tools and skills.
Working with Applications shifts gear from creating custom programs to using them. Thus, the overall product, the ” BioinformaticsBiocomputing and Perl “, serves well its purpose as an introductory textbook and a resource of reference materials for bioinformaticians.
