A light-hearted and analogy-filled companion to the authors’ popular online courses, Bioinformatics Algorithms – An Active Learning Approach presents students with a dynamic approach to learning bioinformatics. It strikes a unique balance between practical challenges in modern biology and fundamental algorithmic ideas, thus capturing the interest of biology ad computer students alike.

Each chapter begins with a central biological question, such as “Are There Fragile Regions in the Human Genome?” or Which DNA Patterns Play the role of Molecular Clocks?: and then steadily develops the algorithmic sophistication required to answer this question. Hundreds of exercise are incorporated directly into the text as soon as they are needed: readers can test their knowledge through automated coding challenges on Rosalind ( an online platform for learning bioinformatics.

The textbook website ( directs readers toward additional educational materials, including video lectures and PowerPoint slides.
