> 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,
> programming
> etc. that can get me up and running.  I have fairly clear ideas of what
> I
> want to achieve but want to learn what tools exist for me out there and
> how
> 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
> I
> should take would be most appreciated.
> Thanks for your help.
