Bridging the gap between introductory theory and practical knowledge, this second edition reflects the fast-moving field of DNA microarrays by adding new and updated chapters that cover cutting-edge microarray topics. This edition now offers the option of learning elements of MATLAB® in parallel with data analysis. The author also includes Bioconductor tools that are linked to the theoretical concepts discussed in the text. This edition also features more opportunities for readers to practice everything that they have learned from the book. The accompanying CD-ROM provides MATLAB code and tips on how to use the MATLAB Bioinformatics toolbox.
