To complete this book, we are including a collection of very practical tables and resources anyone in bioinformatics can use.
The first two appendixes contain common tables for nucleotides, amino acids, and genetic codes. If you're like we are, you have versions of these thumbtacked near your workspace.
The references contain all references found at the end of individual chapters, plus our favorite books and some URLs for BioJava and BioPerl. One of us (Scott) has a pet peeve that references are never where you need them. So in our book, they're in two places.
In the final appendix, we mention our future plans by including a proposed contribution to the EMBOSS suite. We hope you like it as much as we enjoyed designing it.
