Mostly I believe the 2 earlier reviews.
This ebook isn't very reliable as an advent. First learn another e-book corresponding to Setubal and Meidanis, "Introduction to Computational Molecular Biology"; or Krane & Raymer, "Fundamental options of Bioinformatics". those books have extra readable narrative and examples.
The writing during this ebook is obtuse. it's written like a complicated summary math booklet, unlike an ostensibly utilized technological know-how publication. The notation is unnecessarily problematic. although it says "Introduction" within the identify, there are only a few educational examples. this is often only for mathematicians/computer scientists: no biologist i've got ever identified would/could learn this and very comprehend the algorithms.
This booklet does, even though, have one of many extra entire precise descriptions of varied algorithms used for series matching, and so on. when you have learn another books and are searhing for extra information on algorithms, then this can be your publication. yet i am nonetheless anticipating the final word Computational Biology ebook!
