Question: looking for a books on basic to intermediate Bioinformatics.

Hi

I need help finding an easy to understand, comprehensive book on basic and intermediate bioinformatics. I own Bioinformatics-concepts, skills and applications 2nd edition by S.C. rastogi n namita mendiratta. The book/books should cover all topics ranging from concepts to algorithms and tools and should be a recent edition. It can be of an Indian or international author.

I found two books on indian website-

1)Bioinformatics: Databases, Tools, and Algorithms-by Orpita BosuSimminder Kaur Thukral

2)Bioinformatics: Principles And Applications-by zhumur ghosh

I am not sure if these are good. 

Thanks

Hi Ruchira,

I personally think, the definition of bioinformatics is changing by time. Now you need more indepth knowledge of programming to acomplished and handle certain tasks than just working knowledge of basic tools. I will suggest you to please spend few more time on programing. Following links will be useful for online lerning.
