- An essential textbook for teaching how to apply Perl in the development of Web databases and automating bioinformatics tasks
- Focuses on learning Perl as a tool then applying it to bioinformatics problems
- Teaches readers to create their own customized programs to address specific tasks and to manage complex data structures within those programs
- Each chapter includes an example illustrating the use of material covered in that chapter and exercises to practise
- Features maxims and technical notes for easy reference.
- The book will have an accompanying website with details of source code and other supporting material
