Description

General description

BioComputing: Computer Tools for Biologists contains a selection of BioTechniques′ best Biocomputing papers from 1996-2002 augmented with original author updates. This comprehensive collection provides researchers with simple programs and open source code that can be used as models to study, copy, and modify for developing new computer programs. It also contains useful tools and insights into how to design better queries and interpret results more carefully, thus making more effective use of websites such as BLAST and PubMed.
