not yet rated|write a review
Thanks to communication technologies, and particularly the Internet, we now take immediate access to enormous quantities of information for granted. And thanks to "the new biology", building on the genome projects, some scientists are predicting that cures for the majority of known diseasescould be readily available within two generations. This book aims to help the practitioners of the second revolution, the molecular biologists who are more at home at a laboratory bench than in front of a computer keyboard, to use the Internet more effectively. Sansom and Horton provide a broadintroduction to using Internet based computing resources to support research in molecular biology. After surveying the core databases and other online resources, the focus shifts to tools and techniques for exploiting and authoring Internet-distributed information. Later chapters provide detailedexamples of how technologies such as molecular visualisation, VRML and XSLT can be applied to biological problems.
