Part of the JONES AND BARTLETT SERIES IN BIOMEDICAL INFORMATICS
Bioinformatics is a growing field that attracts researchers from many different backgrounds, including some who are unfamiliar with algorithms commonly used in the field. Python for Bioinformatics provides a clear introduction to the Python programming language and instructs beginners on the development of simple programming exercises . Ideal for the upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as those hoping to expand their knowledge of programming for bioinformatics, Kinser's text emphasizes the proper Python syntax and methodologies. The text is divided into three complete sections; the first provides an explanation of general Python programming, the second includes a detailed discussion of the Python tools typically used in bioinformatics including clustering, associative memories, and mathematical analysis techniques, and the third section demonstrates how these tools are implemented through numerous applications.
