Practical Computing for Biologists

Steven H. D. Haddock and Casey W. Dunn

  • Twenty-two chapters organized into six parts address these topics (and more): searching with regular expressions; the Unix command line; Python programming and debugging; creating and editing graphics; databases; performing analyses on remote servers; and working with electronics.
  • While most of the concepts and examples apply to any operating system, the main narrative focuses on Mac OS X. Where there are differences for Windows and Linux users, parallel instructions are provided in the margin and in an appendix.
