Bioinformatics: Methods Express is unique. It is a book on bioinformatics that makes sense to non-bioinformaticians.
Bioinformatics: Methods Express helps you answer common questions such as:
*what else is similar to my gene?
*does this protein have any transmembrane regions?
*how do I visualize an alignment between these DNAs?
*where can I find specific transcription factor sequences?
The book provides the clear advice and explicit protocols that non-bioinformaticians need in order to understand what to do – and how to avoid common pitfalls. Each chapter guides you through the major databases and tools with worked examples – all accompanied by sample data files available online.
Topics covered include:
*sequence searches and alignments
*identification and annotation of features
*protein structure and function
*comparisons and phylogeny
Bioinformatics: Methods Express is a comprehensive manual for all wet-bench scientists who need to use bioinformatics – from postgraduate student to principal investigator.
