Computerized sequence analysis is an integral part of biotechnological research, yet many biologists have received no formal training in this important technology. Sequence Analysis Primer offers the beginner the necessary background to enter this vital field and helps more seasonedresearchers to fine-tune their approach. It covers basic data manipulation such as homology searches, stem-loop identification, and protein secondary structure prediction, and is compatible with most sequence analysis programs. A detailed example giving steps for characterizing a new gene sequenceprovides users with hands-on experience when combined with their current software. The book will be invaluable to researchers and students in molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, and biotechnology.
