For decades, bioinformatics textbooks have primarily served gene-hunters and biologists constructing family trees showing tidy lines of descent. Written to make the 'new' information-based bioinformatics intelligible to both the 'bio' and the 'info' audiences, this book identifies the types of information that genomes transmit, shows how competition between different types is resolved in the genomes of different organisms, and identifies the evolutionary forces involved. Early chapters relate the form of information with which we are most familiar, namely written texts, to the DNA text that is our genome. Providing a pathway for introducing historical aspects dating back to the nineteenth century.
