Hello, I graduated a year ago with a B.S. degree in biological science. I've taken some basic computer sciences courses on the introductory level, and have found myself working in a computational biology lab.
Right now, I have the chance to take discrete mathematics as a night course. From what I understand this will help me understand biological algorithms much better. Is this a good idea, to take discrete math, if I want to gain further insight into biological algorithms?
Also, what are some books that I can directly translate my new found knowledge of discrete mathematics into the understanding of biological algorithms? Will I be able to do this without take an analysis of algorithms course, per se?
I've tagged this community wiki, so please leave your comments.
Thank you very much. Adam
