This introduction to computational molecular biology will help programmers and biologists learn the skills needed to start work in this important, expanding field. The author explains many of the basic computational problems and gives concise, working programs to solve them in the Perl programming language. With minimal prerequisites, the author explains the biological background for each problem, develops a model for the solution, then introduces the Perl concepts needed to implement the solution. The book covers pairwise and multiple sequence alignment, fast database searches for homologous sequences, protein motif identification, genome rearrangement, physical mapping, phylogeny…
