An invaluable aid, this book has much to offer the novice bioinformaticist and should be strongly considered by those who are new to the field. -- Darryl Nishamura, Biotech Software & Internet report, Vol 2 No 5, 2001
Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this book to Computer Scientists, Biologists, and even people already involved in Bioinformatics. -- Brandon King, Cerritos Linux Users Group, April 2002 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
Developing Bioinformatics Computer Skills will help biologists, researchers, and students develop a structured approach to biological data and the computer tools they'll need to analyze it. The book covers the Unix file system, building tools and databases for bioinformatics, computational approaches to biological problems, an introduction to Perl for bioinformatics, data mining, data visualization, and tips for tailoring data analysis software to individual research needs. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.See all Product Description
This book is the worst I've ever purchased. It has been no help whatsoever. It had a couple examples of PERL programming...big deal. Read morePublished on June 10 2004

Awful book. Not useful at all. FILLED WITH A TON OF INACCURACIES, ESPECIALLY IN THE GENETICS CENTRAL DOGMA AREA. Read morePublished on April 29 2002
Most biological scientists are comfortable in Windows-based environments (Mac or Wintel) and can migrate from one to the other. They are also happy on the web. Read morePublished on Sept. 27 2001 by Peter J. Neame
