"...can be used as a classroom text, a tutorial, or a laboratory bench reference...reinforces concepts that have survived...and incorporates new approaches and algorithms for analyzing genes and proteins." (SciTech Book News, Vol. 25, No. 3, September 2001)
"...a great book covering the discipline of bioinformatics.... This high quality book will be helpful to many..." (Lab News, October/November 2001)
"Baxevanis and Ouellette provide a timely update and much new information in this important field. Although each chapter has been revised and updated, the strengths of the first edition remain. The range of topics is comprehensive.... Each topic is presented in an easily accessible style.... An important feature is the frequent discussion of the shortcomings and pitfalls.... A surprising addition, and one that is also surprisingly lucid, practical and even entertaining, is the chapter on Perl programming.... It is most highly recommended for students and for established investigators alike...." (Trends in Genetics)
"[it] is a good practical book and many will benefit from reading it" (Proteomics, May 25, 2001)
"...beneficial to both beginners and experienced readers...this book, written by the top scientists in the field of bioinformatics, is the perfect choice for every molecular biology laboratory" (The Quarterly Review of Biology, March 2002)
