Practical Bioinformatics. First edition 2004. Second printing 2007. (Nucleic Acids and Molecular Biology, Volume 15). 10 col. illustr. 43 b/w illustr. XVII, 265 p. gr8vo. Paper bd.
Bridges the gap between bioinformaticists and molecular biologists,i.e. the developers and the users of computational methods for biological data. Presents examples of practical applications of thebioinformatics tools in the "daily practice" of an experimental researchscientist. Starts out with reviews on computational methods for proteinsequence-structure-function analysis, followed by methods thatexplicitly utilize experimental data routinely obtained in thelaboratory to improve the functional preditions. Also comprises a seriesof examples on how particular applications of different types ofbioinformatics methods in combination with experimental studies tovalidate the hypotheses have led to important scientific discoveries.
