Twenty-four chapters introduce readers to Python and, using example codes, guides them through tasks and concepts, many specific to bioinformatics such as: image manipulation, parsing of DNA data files, genetic algorithms, multiple sequence alignment, trees, clustering, text mining, numerical sequence alignment, and gene expression array files, among others.
While custom in-house code will be written for these large data searches, TGen reports that benchmarks were run on the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool), an algorithm for comparing primary biological sequence information, ClustalW, a general purpose multiple sequence alignment program for DNA or proteins, and NAMD, a parallel molecular dynamics code for large biomolecular systems.
