A guide for applying basic informatics algorithms to medical data sets. It includes examples using three most common programming languages (Perl, Python, and Ruby). It provides basic methods for retrieving, organizing, merging, and analyzing their data sources. It covers building blocks, primary tasks of medical informatics, and medical discovery
