What is the best book for computer scientist students to get introduced to genomics? T.A. Brown Genomes 2 was rather OK, but that is old.

Would these students have previous exposure to molecular biology?  If not, I would start there.

No or little previous experience I am afraid.

It's just over 5 years old, but 'A Primer of Genome Science, 3rd Edition' by Gibson and Muse (link here) covers a lot of the needed basics. I used this as the major reference in a Senior Graduate Seminar I taught last Fall for CS/Bioinformatics students who lacked a biology background and it worked fairly well for the first two thirds of the course.
