Hi - I am considering taking my broad experience in computer science
and retraining to some degree the areas of bioinformatics/
computational biology. I have very little biology knowledge at all..

I am interested in finding a book that I can read to get an
introduction to this field. Most books I have seen so far appear to be
for biologists needing to gain computer science skills. EG how to
setup Linux, program in Pearl etc which I *DONT* need.

I would appreciate any recommendations for books that will introduce
someone with a strong and broad computer science background to the
bioinformatics area of study. I need knowledge on the prerequisite
biology concepts and the types of problems in that
bioinformatics/computational biology is addressing via computer
science etc.

Thanks for your recommendations..
