Combinatorial pattern matching algorithms in computational biology using Perl and R - Boca Raton Chapman & Hall/CRC Press 2009 - 352 p. : ill. ; 25 cm. - Chapman & Hall/CRC mathematical and computational biology series .

The book provides a well-rounded explanation of traditional issues as well as an up-to-date account of more recent developments, such as graph similarity and search. It is organized around the specific algorithmic problems that arise when dealing with structures that are commonly found in computational biology, including biological sequences, trees, and graphs. For each of these structures, the author makes a clear distinction between problems that arise in the analysis of one structure and in the comparative analysis of two or more structures. He also presents phylogenetic trees and networks as examples of trees and graphs in computational biology. (
