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.
