Histones are subject to a wide variety of posttranslational modifications including but not limited to, lysine acetylation, lysine and arginine methylation, serine and threonine phosphorylation, and lysine ubiquitination and sumoylation (Vasquero 2003). These modifications occur primarily within the histone amino-terminal tails protruding from the surface of the nucleosome as well as on the globular core region (Cosgrove 2004).

"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.
