Bioinformatics: Methods and Protocols
by Stephen Misener (Editor), Stephen A. Krawetz (Editor)
1st edition (January 15, 2000)
Users and veterans survey the key biological software packages available and offer tips and an overview of the current development in the resources. Among the sequence analysis systems they review are GCG, Omiga, MacVector, DNASTAR, PepTool, GeneTool, and the Staden Package.
Those for molecular biology include Genotator and sequence- similarity searching using FASTA, CLUSAL multiple sequence alignment, and phylogenetic analysis. They discuss Web-based resources such as primary sequence databases, primary sequence analysis methods, and clinical databases useful in molecular medicine. They also outline an introductory course in bioinformatics and suggest ways to keep it current.
