> There is a very nice O'reilly book: Developing Bioinformatics Computer Skills
I bought it and don't like it at all. I think it's just a compilation of tools
found on the Web. None of the concepts is really introduced, no algorithms etc.
I don't think you can really learn anything from this book.
1) David Mount
Bioinformatics: Sequence and Genome Analysis
Cold Spring Harbour Lab. Press
Very nice if you are coming from the biology side. Very understandable but
not to shallow. This book really teaches you about some of the ideas that
are used for e.g. sequence alignment etc.
2) Dan Gusfield
Algorithms on Strings, Trees, and Sequences: Computer Science and
Great for Computer scientists or as a more in depth reading after 1)
