Darn. You 'stole' my title off the well-worn notebook I compiled for
our lab. It is thick with copies of information and articles on
bioinformatics from various sources. 

I will peruse the book when it reaches the nearby Barnes & Nobles
bookstore (surprisingly, they have two books on BI, but they haven't
moved in 6 months).

I do like my cover better than your's. :)
