"This book is an excellent example of a hybrid between a textbook and an up-to-date research reference on the latest bioinformatics tools available in this eld. Its rigorous and thorough approach makes it a reliable starting point for bioinformaticians and biologists. By including details on methodological aspects of some of the algorithms used for various components of the data analysis and coupling these with fully-commented examples and exercises, this book presents itself as a must-have for novices and experts alike. Given the fast pace of the field, no book can be exhaustive, however, the wide variety of tools presented here recommend it to a wide audience, both as expertise and focused research interests."
