This book is designed to provide the newcomer to bioinformatics with enough information to understand the principles of bioinformatic applications. It covers the following topics in a simple and concise manner:
  • History and importance of bioinformatics.
  • DNA, RNA and protein.
  • Computers, Internet and World Wide Web.
  • Databases.
  • DNA and Protein Sequencing and Analysis.
  • Sequence Alignment.
  • Predictive Methods using DNA and Protein sequences.
  • Homology and Phylogeny.
  • Drug discovery and pharmainformatics.
  • Procedures for hands on training.
This is a must for every beginner in bioinformatics.
