BioinformaticsAuthor: Jules J. Berman
Part of the JONES AND BARTLETT SERIES IN BIOMEDICAL INFORMATICS
Written for biomedical professionals and hospital practitioners interested in creating their own programs, Perl Programming for Medicine and Biology, discusses and reviews biomedical data resources, data standards, data organisation, medicolegal and ethical conduct for data miners, and grants-related data sharing responsibilities. It teaches readers the basic Perl programming skills necessary for collecting, analysing, and distributing biomedical data and provides solutions to in-depth problems that face researchers and healthcare professionals.
Non-technical “Background” sections open each chapter to help non-programmers easily comprehend programming procedures. Explanations are provided for the biomedical issues underlying the Perl scripts that follow, and examples of real-world implementation are provided. Perl Programming for Medicine and Biology will show you how to transform, merge, and examine large and complex databases with ease.
