This practical book teaches the skills that scientists need for turning large sequencing datasets into reproducible and robust biological findings. Many biologists begin their bioinformatics training by learning scripting languages like Python and R alongside the Unix command line. But there's a huge gap between knowing a few programming languages and being prepared to analyze large amounts of biological data.
Rather than teach bioinformatics as a set of workflows that are likely to change with this rapidly evolving field, this book demsonstrates the practice of bioinformatics through data skills. Rigorous assessment of data quality and of the effectiveness of tools is the foundation of reproducible and robust bioinformatics analysis. Through open source and freely available tools, you'll learn not only how to do bioinformatics, but how to approach problems as a bioinformatician.
  • Go from handling small problems with messy scripts to tackling large problems with clever methods and tools
  • Focus on high-throughput (or "next generation") sequencing data
  • Learn data analysis with modern methods, versus covering older theoretical concepts
  • Understand how to choose and implement the best tool for the job
  • Delve into methods that lead to easier, more reproducible, and robust bioinformatics analysis



  • 從處理混亂腳本的小問題轉向使用巧妙方法和工具解決大問題

  • 專注於高通量(或“下一代”)序列數據

  • 學習使用現代方法進行數據分析,而不是涵蓋較舊的理論概念

  • 了解如何選擇和實施最佳工具

  • 深入研究導致更容易、更可重複和更可靠的生物信息學分析的方法
