Overview

Bioinformatics Software Engineering: Delivering Effective Applications will be useful to anyone who wants to understand how successful software can be developed in a rapidly changing environment, especially newly qualified bioinformaticians.

It is not tied to any particular operating system, platform, language, or methodology. Instead it focuses on principles and practices that have been proven in the real world. It is pragmatic, emphasizing the importance of what the author calls Adaptive Programming - doing what works in your situation.

It is concise, covering the whole software development lifecycle in one slim volume. And, unusually for a computer book, it is eminently readable.

"Well thought-out ... addresses many of the key issues facing developers of bioinformatics software." Simon Dear, Director, UK Technology and Development, GlaxoSmithKline
