"What we often wished for was a manual that would outline for students all of the things they needed to learn to work in the group. We sat down and made a list, which started with Unix, Web literacy, and the ability to intelligently organize large data sets on a computer, and we included topics as wide-ranging as fundamental database principles, data visualization methods, and elementary programming concepts. Many students needed to learn or be reminded of what DNA is, how it gets translated into protein, and why the order of the characters in a 1-dimensional sequence is important in the 3-dimensional world of biology. And that was before we even got to the main bioinformatics tools: sequence analysis, molecular structure analysis, and modeling based on sequence similarity. We thought we'd better point out that bioinformatics doesn't begin and end with sequence, and that the whole landscape of biology is changing to be more information-oriented.

So, this book is for anyone who wonders what bioinformatics is and where to start on learning the skills they might need to learn to work in a bioinformatics research environment. We hope it helps." [via]

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.
