in reply to Getting into Bioinformatics

Hi AdamK.

Since the field of bioinformatics is evolving so quickly, I am anticipating quite a few books to appear within 9 - 12 months ( my $estimate ). Assuming you have had ( or are currently enrolled in ) a molecular biology class ( or at least an in-depth general bio course for majors - ideally ), I would recommend:

Beginning Perl for Bioinformatics
James D. Tisdall
List Price: $39.95
ISBN: 0596000804

Or...if you would like a more in-depth text:

Developing Bioinformatics Computer Skills
Cynthia Gibas, Per Jambeck
List Price: $34.95
ISBN: 1565926641

Both books use perl && *nix for examples and discuss the nuances of parsing databases, the FASTA format, etc. on genomic structures. For a beginning bioinformatics student, I would highly recommend the first title.

Hope this was helpful,
