Special Online Collection: Dealing with Data

In the 11 February 2011 issue, Science  joins with colleagues from Science Signaling, Science Translational Medicine, and Science  Careers to provide a broad look at the issues surrounding the increasingly huge influx of research data. This collection of articles highlights both the challenges posed by the data deluge and the opportunities that can be realized if we can better organize and access the data.

Science is making access to this entire collection FREE (simple registration is required for non-subscribers).

"Python for Bioinformatics"
ISBN 1584889292
Amazon: http://www.tinyurl.com/biopython
Publisher: http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781584889298

This book introduces programming concepts to life science researchers, bioinformaticians, support staff, students, and everyone who is interested in applying programming to solve biologically-related problems. Python is the chosen programming language for this task because it is both powerful and easy-to-use.

It begins with the basic aspects of the language (like data types and control structures) up to essential skills on today's bioinformatics tasks like building web applications, using relational database management systems, XML and version control. There is a chapter devoted to Biopython (www.biopython.org) since it can be used for most of the tasks related to bioinformatics data processing.

There is a section with applications with source code, featuring sequence manipulation, filtering vector contamination, calculating DNA melting temperature, parsing a genbank file, inferring splicing sites, and more.

There are questions at the end of every chapter and odd numbered questiona are answered in an appendix making this text suitable for classroom use.

This book can be used also as a reference material as it includes Richard Gruet's Python Quick Reference, and the Python Style Guide.

Bioinformatics Markets

The life science informatics marketplace--known as bioinformatics--is set to expand as high-tech companies infiltrate this arena and biopharmaceutical companies incorporate key informatic solutions into their business strategies. It is believed that many of the segments of bioinformatics described in this report offer an unusual opportunity for accelerated expansion within the coming years. This study is arranged to provide an overview of bioinformatics market segments and offer evidence that these segments are poised for significant future growth.

Each segment is accompanied by analysis and forecasts by product type and application. This analysis surveys the bioinformatics market and the latest information regarding emerging new products and industry trends. The study will quantify and qualify the bioinformatics market segments as an area of research, product development and investment. Forecasts of the bioinformatics market and an analysis of products in the worldwide information-processing market will provide a basis for understanding the significance of past developments and future possibilities within this market category.
