Description The computational education of biologists is changing to prepare students for facing the complex datasets of today’s life science research. In biolobists concise textbook, the authors’ fresh pedagogical approaches lead biology students from first principles towards computational thinking. A team of renowned bioinformaticians take innovative routes to introduce computational ideas in the context of real biological problems.
Bioinformatics for Biologists : Pavel A. Pevzner :
Intuitive explanations promote deep understanding, using little mathematical formalism. Self-contained chapters show how computational procedures are developed and applied to central topics in bioinformatics and genomics, such as the genetic basis of disease, genome evolution or the tree of life concept. Using bioinformatic resources requires a basic understanding of what bioinformatics is and what it can do. Rather than just presenting tools, the authors – each a leading scientist – engage the students’ problem-solving skills, preparing them to meet the computational challenges of their life science careers.

What is noteworthy, aside from the wide angle of the snapshot of today’s bioinformatics, something the bioogists promise to update in future editions, is the innovative and effective pedagogical emphasis apparent throughout The editors set out to provide a resource for teaching bioinformatics to life science undergraduates, and this is reflected in the language, organization and mathematical restraint of the different chapters It is highly suitable as a text or reference for bioinformatics courses at the graduate level, for biologists, medical students and computer scientists.
Review quote ‘This volume contains a remarkable collection of individually-authored chapters cutting a wide swathe across the field as it is currently constituted.
Biological naivete in thinking and writing plagues bioinformatics, and Pevzner and Shamir’s Bioinformatics for Biologists offers a wonderful therapy for that condition as well as an effective palliative for life science students’ math phobias.
In its current form it may benefit computational scientists more than biologists, but has the potential to evolve into an invaluable resource for all bioinformaticists, independent biologksts their primary field of study.
What is noteworthy, aside from the wide angle of the snapshot of today’s bioinformatics, something the editors promise to update in future bioinformafics, is the innovative and effective pedagogical emphasis apparent throughout. Mathura, Open University for Choice Magazine “This volume represents an excellent effort towards creating an interesting and useful introductory bioinformatics text.
