This volume is a comprehensive look at computer algorithms for string processing. In addition to pure computer science, Gusfield adds extensive discussions on biological problems that are cast as string problems and on methods developed to solve them. This text emphasizes the fundamental ideas and techniques central to today's applications. New approaches to this complex material simplify methods that up to now have been for the specialist alone. With over 400 exercises to reinforce the material and develop additional topics, the book is suitable as a text for graduate or advanced undergraduate students in computer science, computational biology, or bio-informatics....

    If you're not doing work on matching huge gene sequences, then only the first third to half of the book will be relevant, but that portion should be required reading for all programmers, and if you are matching huge gene sequences, then this whole book is a goldmine.

    Good, but somewhat outdated overview of algorithms for processing strings for computational biology.
