>> Hello all,
>> I am a molecular biologist and want to break into the field of
> computational biology from this side. Can anyone please recommend good
> beginners texts in algorithms (one that does not assume a lot of math,
> maybe leaning toward biological applications), bioinformatics,
> etc. that can get me up and running. I have fairly clear ideas of what
> want to achieve but want to learn what tools exist for me out there and
> I can tinker with those tools to ask new questions.
>> I'm probably asking a lot but any ideas on books or the kind of approach
> should take would be most appreciated.
>> Thanks for your help.
