This is a list of oriented topics of bioinformatics books. I see that it might help for new comers searching for special topics Bioinformatics books list by category , some of them are old so I hope that our fellows in BioStars suggest books that you should read or have in your shelf if you are bioinformation or interested in that field.

for me my first intro to bioinformatics was bioinformatics for dummies :)

after that I was opened more to bioinformatics field I read those introductory books

  • Phylogenetic Trees Made Easy: A How-To Manual
  • Computational Biology: Unix/Linux, Data Processing and Programming
  • Beginning Perl for Bioinformatics by James D. Tisdall
  • Essential Bioinformatics
  • Head first Java
  • Head first Python
  • Bioinformatics for High Throughput Sequencing

bioinformatics for dummies

That's a good book! The T-Coffee guy wrote it. It was my first book too. It demystifies things a lot.

From relatively recent books I liked a lot "Practical Bioinformatics" edited by Janusz Bujnicki, but my long-time favourite is "Biological sequence analysis" by Richard Durbin, Sean R. Eddy, Anders Krogh and Graeme Mitchison (wonderful coverage of basic stuff in bioinformatics).

And the solution manual that accompanies Durbin's book
