previous edition of Japanese For Dummies (Wiley), as well as proud of this book; please send us Japanese For Overcoming Anxiety For Dummies, 2nd. Elsevier Editorial System(tm) for Plant Science Manuscript Draft Manuscript Number: Title: Bioinformatics FOR Dummies. 2ND EDITION Article Type: Book. ISBN: December Pages Bioinformatics For Dummies is packed with valuable information that introduces you to this exciting new.
Book contents: The book contains five parts; each of them contains different numbers of chapters. The first part contains two chapters which are serving as a quick guide for the basics of biology and book contents. This chapter provides coverage underlying the main principles of both genetic and bioinformatics analysis which should make this book suitable for all students of bioinformatics beginners. The successive parts provide the readers with quick and useful navigation into the world of bioinformatics and its useful tools and techniques.
Book importance: This Book is advisable for both researchers and students who want to begin learning about bioinformatics. In my opinion, this is the book to start with comparing to other hardcore bioinformatics books.
It provides a lot of recent bioinformatics and updated resources online. The ease of language and the simple illustrations make it one of the best teaching materials for undergraduate students in this field.
Points to reconsider in further editions: The text contains some French phrases, which I enjoy it very much, but it may bother some non French speaking dummies who do not understand the language.

Discussion and presentations are encouraged throughout the course, and workshops are organized at the end of the course.

Paperback Verified Purchase. I am a couple years into a PhD in bioinformatics, but this is the book I started with.
I knew some biology and some computer science, but I still found a lot of the databases, etc. Of course, bioinformatics is a pretty broad topic and no book could possibly cover everything. You don't need anything in depth to read the dummies book, just at the level of an introductory biology book. And you want to know why proteins are similar because proteins with similar amino acid sequences often have similar chemical properties and therefore similar functions, so if you know what one protein does you can guess what a protein like it probably does.
I like this product. It helped me refresh for my oral comprehensives when my committee asked me about the bioinformatics component of my research. Language is very down-to-earth. This would make a good book for high school students or even freshman-level bioinformatic courses.

Bioinformatics for Dummies
The book is from and it is outdated in the sense that the webpages shown in the book is too different from what you receive from the websites today in If you are a novice and you are if you buy this book there are so many new concepts and and acronyms, that you cannot find what you are looking for, when the layout of the actual webpages has been changed considerably.
The content of the book is fine, it is an easy to read beginners introduction to the basic tools of the trade.
However, the content is already hopelessly out of date. Not sure there is a practical way around that difficulty.
With a bit of understanding how these databases work and what you are actually trying to do you can figure it out. One person found this helpful. There is a lot of the book related to giving you details of particular sites to go to -- to perform various tasks.Finding out about DNA chips and micro-arrays Address.
