Epilogue – Where Next?
In this book I have tried to present fundamental ideas, algorithms, and techniques that have a wide range of application and that will likely remain important even as the present-day interests change. I have also tried to explain the fundamental reasons why computations on strings and sequences are productive in biology and will remain important even as the specific applications change. But with only 500 pages (a mere 285,639 words formed from 1,784,996 characters), there are certain algorithmic methods and certain present and anticipated applications that I could not cover.
For additional pure computer ...
