What books or online materials have you found to be most helpful to teach the basics of modern molecular biology to people with a pure computer science, or an applied math / statistics background?
These resources would be for people who want to start to make a transition to computational and systems biology but who stopped taking biology in high school or first year. I'm interested in resources that cover both the biology and common experimental techniques.
It would be great to be able to just hand them Molecular Biology of the Cell but that almost never works. Typically, I start them on The Cartoon Guide to Genetics. It's a good start but not comprehensive enough. Neither book is good for learning about high-throughput assays.
I've looked at related questions like: How to get started in bioinformatics but they don't cover resources for learning biology in a computer scientist friendly way.
