Biology and Mathematics integrated chapter by chapter, the biology
coverage is extensive and usable as biology text in itself

Each chapter includes computer biology "laboratory" exercises
for studying biological mechanisms and dynamics via mathematical
modeling

a "Mathematical Tools" chapter is included covering the mathematical
concepts and practices needed for all but the last chapter of the book;
a separate introduction to algebraic statistics is given for that

the mathematical modeling is implemented in both Maple
and Matlab, extensive examples are given including the
code for all figures

computer code construction proceeds from very the elementary and
basic to the more complex; the book features a "code index"
whereby specific mathematical techniques implemented in the
code examples can be readily located

an introduction to the new mathematics of algegraic statistics
invented for genomics is given along with several applications
including the new chapter of phylogenetics

coverage is provided of the revolutionary multidisipline of
genomics and several of its equally revolutionary offshoots

an introduction to "internet biology" is given featuring DNA and
protein database look ups, BLAST matching, and comparative genomics
carried out on the NCBI website

extensive treatment is provided of the mathematics underlying DNA
and protein sequence matching and the Dayhoff and other scoring
matrices
