Working with Data applies the programming skills acquired to processing a variety of bioinformatics data. Would you like to change to the site?

The section ‘Working with Perl’ presents an extended tutorial with practical tips and useful references for Perl beginners. 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. 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.

Description Bioinformatics, Biocomputing and Perl presents a modern introduction to bioinformatics computing skills and practice. Journal List Biomed Eng Online v. 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.
