This aptly titled book is a timely publication that details several algorithms widely used in bioinformatics. ... This work can serve as a reference guide for students and researchers attempting to implement or learn algorithms relevant to bioinformatics. Although some concepts referenced in the book specifically target advanced bioinformatics experts, general users should not be discouraged from reading this work. ...Summing Up: Recommended.-CHOICE, June 2010... an excellent guide. The book is appropriate for advanced undergraduates and graduates in mathematics or CS. ... The 27-page introduction is the most efficient concept-building summary and explication of molecular biology that I have encountered. ... Section 1.8 sets a new, high standard for science-history exposition, covering Gregor Mendel to the present. ...This self-contained, well-designed, and well-written book, with its many good exercises, bibliographic references, and photo-quality figures, is an ideal introduction to bioinformatics.-George Hacken, Computing Reviews, March 2010
