About This Page

This page lists some of the original literature that are related to genome sequence assembly and analysis.

Background Materials

Background material on BLAST and other computer programs can be found in a number of texts. The following are all useful, depending on the goals of the course and the background of the students.

  • "Discovering Genomics, Proteomics, and Bioinformatics" by A.M. Campbell and L.J. Heyer, 2nd edition, 2007, CSHL Press & Pearson Benjamin Cummings, NY.
  • "Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics" by R. Pevsner, 2003, J. Wiley & Sons, NJ (also an excellent web site).
  • "BLAST" by I. Korf, M. Yandell, J. Bedell, 2003, O'Reilly (recommended for in-depth use of BLAST and interpretation of results).
