Default Free Ebook on Bioinformatics Tools - Feel Free to Grab It

Hello all,

I am putting together an ebook to describe a number of useful bioinformatics tools. The book is under development, and V0.1 is freely available at the following link.

https://leanpub.com/pandoras-toolbox

[In fact, if you grab V0.1, all updates will also be freely available to you based on leanpub rules.]

Here is what I am trying to achieve. I work with a number of biologists and they often complain about - (i) not knowing what bioinformatics tools to use for their large data files, (ii) the tools they have need more RAM etc. than what they have and (iii) not knowing how to mix/match multiple tools to do something efficiently and (iv) interpreting the results coming from various programs. For example, does Trinity giving 350,000 assembled transcripts mean the organism has 350K genes?

So, I am building together a minimal set of efficient programs to help them so that I do not need to go over the same explanation many times. The project is moving slowly, but I am making progress.

Here are some of the relevant posts -

All thoughts and suggestions are welcome.
