Review:

'For a committed point-and-clicker like myself, Practical Computing for Biologists is a most valuable book. It offers just the right introduction for those less computer savvy biologists who would like to enhance and streamline their ability to handle, process, and analyze data. This book has already made me more confident in confronting the large amounts of data that face me in day-to-day research.' - Ronald Jenner, The Natural History Museum, London, UK

'In this age of informatics and genomics, the ability to mine and manipulate data is an essential skill for graduate students in ecology and evolutionary biology. Practical Computing for Biologists provides a much-needed guide to using Unix and Python to assemble and analyze large data sets. I'm looking forward to using this book as a text to accompany our quantitative bootcamp for new graduate students.' - Michael Alfaro, University of California, Los Angeles, USA

From the Publisher:

Practical Computing for Biologists shows you how to use many freely available computing tools to work more powerfully and effectively. The book was born out of the authors' own experience in developing tools for their research and helping other biologists with their computational problems. Many of the techniques are relevant to molecular bioinformatics but the scope of the book is much broader, covering topics and techniques that are applicable to a range of scientific endeavours.
 
Twenty-two chapters organized into six parts address the following topics (and more; see Contents):

• Searching with regular expressions
• The Unix command line
• Python programming and debugging
• Creating and editing graphics
• Databases
• Performing analyses on remote servers
• Working with electronics

While the main narrative focuses on Mac OS X, most of the concepts and examples apply to any operating system. Where there are differences for Windows and Linux users, parallel instructions are provided in the margin and in an appendix. The book is designed to be used as a self-guided resource for researchers, a companion book in a course, or as a primary textbook. Practical Computing for Biologists will free you from the most frustrating and time-consuming aspects of data processing so you can focus on the pleasures of scientific inquiry.
