Hi guys,

I am currently in a PhD program focused on bioinformatics and comp. bio. I have been going though lecture notes from notable labs here and there but i would love to get some opinion on which reliable text i can get as a good reference book. I search and most of the recommendations were given 7 to 11 years ago and since the field keeps changing i would want to get updated recommendations.

Thanks

For bioinformatics related basic statistics, I recommend Modern Statistics for Modern Biology by Susan Holmes and Wolfgang Huber.

As well as hitting a good balance between theory and practice, it also has the benefit of being available free online (as well as to by in print)

Bioinformatics Algorithms is a really good book. It explains the fundamental algorithms (sequence alignment, motif finding etc) in depth with applications and examples.

I don't mean to be a stickler, but bioinformatics and computational biology are not synonymous, and I have my reservations that you are in a program that covers both fields equally. It would help us to know whether you study biological macromolecules using non-biological tools, or if you develop non-biological tools to study biology (but not necessarily only biological macromolecules).

Assuming that you study bioinformatics, here is my suggestion:
