previous edition of Japanese For Dummies (Wiley), as well as proud of this book; please send us Japanese For Overcoming Anxiety For Dummies, 2nd. Elsevier Editorial System(tm) for Plant Science Manuscript Draft Manuscript Number: Title: Bioinformatics FOR Dummies. 2ND EDITION Article Type: Book. ISBN: December Pages Bioinformatics For Dummies is packed with valuable information that introduces you to this exciting new.

Explore the human genome and analyze DNA — without leaving your desktop! All it takes is the basics of molecular biology and the wealth of information in this friendly guide. You'll discover the online tools and useful tips you need to ask the right questions, analyze sequences, and compare results.

It's a plain-English introduction to the field! He has used computers in biology since the early days —— his Ph. He is the author or coauthor of more than scientific publications, and a member of numerous international review panels and scientific councils. In his spare time, he enjoys the relaxed pace of life in Marseilles, with his wife Chantal and their two sons, Nicholas and Raphael. Cedric has used and abused the facilities offered by science to wander around Europe.

After a Ph. He then did a post-doc in Lausanne Switzerland with Phillip Bucher, and remained involved with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics for several years. Having had his share of rain, snow, and wind, Cedric has finally settled in Marseilles, where the sun and the sea are simply warmer than any other place he has lived in.

Cedric dedicates most of his research to the multiple sequence alignment problem and its many applications in biology. His friends claim that his entire life past, present, future is somehow stuffed into the T-Coffee multiple-sequence alignment package.

When he is not busy dismantling T-Coffee and brewing new sequences, Cedric enjoys life in the company of his wife, Marita. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

I knew some biology and some computer science, but I still found a lot of the databases, etc.

Of course, bioinformatics is a pretty broad topic and no book could possibly cover everything. You don't need anything in depth to read the dummies book, just at the level of an introductory biology book. And you want to know why proteins are similar because proteins with similar amino acid sequences often have similar chemical properties and therefore similar functions, so if you know what one protein does you can guess what a protein like it probably does.

I like this product. It helped me refresh for my oral comprehensives when my committee asked me about the bioinformatics component of my research. Language is very down-to-earth. This would make a good book for high school students or even freshman-level bioinformatic courses.

Building a Multiple Sequence Alignment Application Procedure Extrapolation A good multiple alignment can help convince you that an uncharacterized sequence is really a member of a protein family.

Phylogenetic analysis If you carefully choose the sequences you include in your multiple alignment, you can reconstruct the history of these proteins. Use the Pasteur Phylip server at bioweb. Pattern identification By discovering very conserved positions, you can identify a region that is characteristic of a function in proteins or in nucleic-acid sequences.

Use the logo server for that purpose: Domain identification It is possible to turn a multiple sequence alignment into a profile that describes a protein family or a protein domain PSSM. You can use this profile to scan databases for new members of the family. DNA regulatory elements You can turn a DNA multiple alignment of a binding site into a weight matrix and scan other DNA sequences for potentially similar binding sites.

Use the Gibbs sampler to identify these sites: Sometimes it can also help in the building of a 3-D model. Multiple alignments can help you predict whether a Non-Synonymous Single-Nucleotide Polymorphism is likely to be harmful. See the SIFT site for more details: PCR Analysis A good multiple alignment can help you identify the less-degenerated portions of a protein family, in order to fish out new members by PCR polymerase chain reaction.

If this is what you want to do, you can use the following site: Turn the list of Hits into a non-redundant collection of sequences npsa-pbil.
