    Books: The Biostar Handbook, a bioinformatics e-book for beginners
    Submitted by Istvan Albert; posted on Thursday, December 08, 2016

    After almost two years of work, the Biostar Handbook has been published. It is a passionately and lovingly crafted e-book that makes a challenging subject accessible and, dare we say, fun.

    The Biostar Handbook introduces readers to bioinformatics, the scientific discipline at the intersection of biology, computer science, and statistical data analytics dedicated to the digital processing of genomic information.

    The e-book delivers simple, concise, and relevant information for those looking to understand the field of bioinformatics as a data science. It is a comprehensive, practical handbook that covers major application areas of bioinformatics from short read alignment to RNA-Seq data analysis.
