Scientific Computing World The dawning of a new age of informatics
"A new synthesis linking the large and increasing amount of biological information at the molecular level with what we know about the structure of cells and organisms must be attempted. Post-genome Informatics sets out the starting point for a study of the gap between these two levels, i.e. how genes and proteins are networked to create a biological system.

"Researchers in the biomedical sciences and the computer scientists who create genome databases, the stated audience for the book, may feel a little cheated. The first hundred or so pages are, as the genesis of the book shows, undergraduate level material.

In the final 30-page chapter does the book begin to do justice to its title. Even then, as the author acknowledges, the most up-to-date information must be sought on the Internet. Considered as a text for advanced undergraduates, however, the book should be welcomed as a concise introduction to genome informatics and beyond. "

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
