    Book Summary

    Unlike most existing texts that either focus on algorithms or on teaching the user how to navigate through specific existing databases, Bioinformatics Databases: Design, Implementation, and Usage provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of bioinformatics databases. This book presents database schemas, code, website links to various databases, and sample applications that connect to these databases. Additional topics include genomic databases, database design issues, integration of databases, as well as current data formats and standards. The text also addresses software design issues and offers practical examples of the design and implementation of bioinformatics databases and tools.
