BIOINFORMATICS BIOCOMPUTING AND PERL PDF

Medical Nonfiction Bioinformatics, Biocomputing and Perl presents a modern introduction to bioinformatics computing skills and practice. Each chapter contains a series of maxims designed to highlight key points and there are exercises to supplement and cement the introduced material. Working with Perl presents an extended tutorial introduction to programming through Perl, the premier programming technology of the bioinformatics community. Even though no previous programming experience is assumed, completing the tutorial equips the reader with the ability to produce powerful custom programs with ease.

Received Oct 7; Accepted Oct The book "Bioinformatics, Biocomputing and Perl" [ 1 ] attempts to encompass those numerous volumes which most bioinformaticians keep on their office bookshelves and which are often entitled as "Something in a Nutshell". It starts with a preface outlining main biological and technological concepts of the modern computational biology.

The rest is organized into four sections consisting of 18 chapters elaborating on essential bioinformatics tools and skills. The section also offers recent and relevant examples of BioPerl applications. In general, the book reflects the state of bioinformatics field with its strengths and weaknesses. Many Perl chapters, such as Perl regular expressions, modular organization, DBI-programming, BioPerl and web-automation, are excellent.

The presented material is rather comprehensive and yet easy to read — the authors spent appreciative efforts to make the book interesting and enjoyable. The authors also acknowledge the open-source nature of Perl and the bioinformatics community and offer on-line support and direct feedback to the readers.

There are also certain aspects, in which the book could be further improved. Several sections may be too advanced for the beginner level such as Perl basics and database downloading , while others may contain too excessive details the Protein Databank section.

The book would greatly benefit from color illustrations. A very useful feature of the book is the use of maxims that highlight key points throughout the text. The authors also provide helpful technical comments where necessary and offer practical exercises at the end of each chapter.

The book is concluded with six appendices covering the Linux basics, Perl installation, operators, on-line support and suggested reading materials which, in my mind, benefit the book tremendously. Thus, the overall product, the "Bioinformatics, Biocomputing and Perl", serves well its purpose as an introductory textbook and a resource of reference materials for bioinformaticians. DBI Perl — the primary interface for database programming by Perl.

BioPerl — a collection of Perl modules specifically designed for several most common bioinformatics tasks. XML — Extensible Markup Language — a popular standard for documents containing structured information. References Moorhouse M, Barry P.
