    Book Summary

    The second edition of Instant Notes in Bioinformatics introduced the readers to the themes and terminology of bioinformatics. It is divided into three parts: the first being an introduction to bioinformatics in biology; the second covering the physical, mathematical, statistical and computational basis of bioinformatics, using biological examples wherever possible; the third describing applications, giving specific detail and including data standards. The applications covered are sequence analysis and annotation, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolite study, supramolecular organization, systems biology and the integration of-omic data, physiology, image analysis, and text analysis.


      Key Features:

      Concise introduction to the subject which focuses on the core material.
      Provides a structured approach to learning.
      Covers both theory and applications.
      Ideal for short courses and for those needing to grasp the subject quickly and easily.
