Hi everyone,

We are in process of establishing a faculty of Bioinformatics and Computational biology at our engineering oriented university. I have to pick out books which are to be ordered for our library. Can anyone here guide me in selecting beginner, intermediate and a few books on various topics in Bioinformatics and Computational and Mathematical Biology.

Any feedback is welcome.

duplicate of: Recommend your favorite bioinformatics books and What are some good free bioinformatics and computational biology books?

I don't see how this can be considered a duplicate, both those threads are 4 years old and the answer/recommendation(s) for this kind of question does not stay constant. Its worth revisiting once in a while.

Some of the books that I would recommend:

Introduction to Bioinformatics Algorithms - 04 edition by Neil C. Jones and Pavel A. Pevzner (Explains and teaches algorithmic principles that are generally applied in Bioinformatics)

Bioinformatics - Sequence and Genome Analysis, Second Edition by David Mount (Excellent book for bioinformatics introductory courses for both life sciences and computer science students)

A non-bioinformatics book but really good to learn genomics Genomes 3 - T A Brown (Covers molecular genetics, genome sequencing and functional genomics)

  1. Biological Sequence Analysis: Probabilistic Models of Proteins and Nucleic Acids
    Richard Durbin (Author), Sean R. Eddy (Author), Anders Krogh (Author), Graeme Mitchison (Author)
    A great theoretical book regarding the main computational biology problems and algorithms.

  2. An Introduction to Systems Biology: Design Principles of Biological Circuits
    Uri Alon (Author)
    This one is more a niche book but it's an important niche.
    And you should also have some basic biology books like Lehninger or Lodish.
