This major new work is an invaluable laboratory manual for all scientists involved with computational genomics. Topics covered include database searches, sequence analysis and comparison, multiple sequence analysis, large-scale EST analysis, genome browsing, protein structure prediction, mircroarray data analysis, and proteomics. The book is also useful as a teaching reference for graduates and undergraduate students.


Computational Genomics: Theory and Applications should be a valuable asset to any investigator struggling to keep up with the current status of publicly available data repositories and analytical tools, but requiring understanding of the logic behind the analysis. - Expert Review of Molecular Diagnosis, Volume 5, No. 4, 2005
