Biology, Cell Biology, Molecular Biology

  • T. Maimets - Molekulaarne rakubioloogia
    • The only almost up-to-date book in estonian
  • A nice way for a beginner to get the required biological background quickly is to start from some Wikipedia article on the topic and do a depth-first or breadth-first traversal of all the links on related subjects from there. Takes about 4-5 hours and is rather enlightening.

Bioinformatics

  • Berrar, Dubitzky. A Practical Approach to Microarray Data Analysis
    • A collection of articles covering different aspects of microarray data analysis. Reads easily, nice introduction to the topic.
    • Brief conspect: here
  • Durbin, Eddy, Krogh, Michison. Biological Sequence Analysis
    • The one and only book on sequence analysis - although a couple years old, it covers almost all methods of interest for sequence analysis.
  • Evan W. Steeg: Data Mining for systems Biology (white paper, see attached files)
  • Hendrik Nigul + EBI sissejuhatus bioinformaatikasse

Statistics

  • ?

Machine Learning, Pattern Analysis

  • MTAT.03.186 Neurov├Árgud
    • Lecture slides & practice session materials of a 4 AP course. Should be a good starting point (especially the practicals). Provides some further references and links.
  • Kernel Methods for Pattern Analysis
    • A nice reference on the topic.
    • Available from Meelis & probably from MT library.
  • Pascal Network Virtual Training Playground.
    • A collection of videos from different international workshops and seminars on machine learning, pattern analysis and statistics.

Computer Science

  • Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs: videos and textbook
    • Haven't read the book (KT), but the videos are great.
