I was wondering if someone could recommend me a book or reading resource on genomics? I am an undergraduate student who has some experience in computer science, a lot in Biology, and work in a laboratory where research focuses on gene expression (miRNAs in particular). I would like a book/resource to aid me with a RNA-seq project that I am beginning, and genomics as a whole as well, for future projects. Thanks in advance! I can provide clarification if needed, sorry if I am too vague.

I got started with Beginning Perl for Bioinformatics (useful for coding, but probably not RNA-Seq)

That said, I think there are a lot of good resources on the web, so I typically wouldn't recommend buying books.

Although I only provide a handful of links to tutorials, I've tried to keep a list of software that I've found useful. So, perhaps this can be a useful starting point in your search:

Not aimed directly at genomics, but good for learning how to code in Perl and R for bioinformatics work: http://www.bookcascade.co.uk/product/Building_Bioinformatics_Solutions-Conrad_Bessant/9780199658565

This is the second edition of the book, being released in the New Year. There is a first edition, which you can probably get used: http://www.bookcascade.co.uk/product/Building_Bioinformatics_Solutions_with_Perl_R_and_MySQL-Conrad_Bessant/9780199230235
