Applied Statistical Genetics with R: For Population-based Association Studies (Use R!)
Applied Statistical Genetics with R: For Population-based Association Studies (Use R!)

Statistical genetics has become a core course in many graduate programs in public health and medicine. This book presents fundamental concepts and principles in this emerging field at a level that is accessible to students and researchers with a first course in biostatistics. Extensive examples are provided using publicly available data and...

Principles of Genetics
Principles of Genetics

The twentieth century began with the rediscovery of Mendel’s rules of inheritance and ended with the complete sequence of the human genome, one of the most monumental scientific accomplishments of all time. What lies in the future? What will the twenty-first century, the century of genomics, bring? Will geneticists a hundred years from...

Modeling and Reasoning with Bayesian Networks
Modeling and Reasoning with Bayesian Networks

Bayesian networks have received a lot of attention over the last few decades from both scientists and engineers, and across a number of fields, including artificial intelligence (AI), statistics, cognitive science, and philosophy.

Perhaps the largest impact that Bayesian networks have had is on the field of AI, where they were...

Streptomyces in Nature and Medicine: The Antibiotic Makers
Streptomyces in Nature and Medicine: The Antibiotic Makers

This is an insiders account of 50 years of genetic studies of the soil-inhabiting microbes that produce most of the antibiotics used to treat infections, as well as anti-cancer, anti-parasitic and immunosuppressant drugs. The book begins by describing how these microbes the actinomycetes were discovered in the latter part of the nineteenth...

Unit Operations: An Approach to Videogame Criticism
Unit Operations: An Approach to Videogame Criticism
"Bogost challenges humanists and technologists to pay attention to one another, something they desperately need to do as computation accelerates us into the red zones of widespread virtual reality. This book gives us what we need to meet that challenge: a general theory for understanding creativity under computation, one that will apply...
Is Human Nature Obsolete?: Genetics, Bioengineering, and the Future of the Human Condition
Is Human Nature Obsolete?: Genetics, Bioengineering, and the Future of the Human Condition
"Modifying ourselves through molecular biology is a humanitarian utopia to some, an imminent nightmare to others. But to all, the prospect should be a challenge because it touches on so many basic and unresolved questions. This excellent, probing collection of papers -- spanning philosophy, history, social science, and theology -- will be...
Statistics and Data with R: An applied approach through examples
Statistics and Data with R: An applied approach through examples
R, an Open Source software, has become the de facto statistical computing environment. It has an excellent collection of data manipulation and graphics capabilities. It is extensible and comes with a large number of packages that allow statistical analysis at all levels – from simple to advanced – and in numerous fields...
Bayesian Networks: A Practical Guide to Applications (Statistics in Practice)
Bayesian Networks: A Practical Guide to Applications (Statistics in Practice)

Bayesian Networks, the result of the convergence of artificial intelligence with statistics, are growing in popularity. Their versatility and modelling power is now employed across a variety of fields for the purposes of analysis, simulation, prediction and diagnosis.

This book provides a general introduction to Bayesian networks,...

Seeing Dark Things: The Philosophy of Shadows
Seeing Dark Things: The Philosophy of Shadows
If a spinning disk casts a round shadow does this shadow also spin? When you experience the total blackness of a cave, are you seeing in the dark? Or are you merely failing to see anything (just like your blind companion)?

Seeing Dark Things uses visual riddles to explore our ability to see shadows, silhouettes, and black birds--plus

Multiobjective Genetic Algorithms for Clustering: Applications in Data Mining and Bioinformatics
Multiobjective Genetic Algorithms for Clustering: Applications in Data Mining and Bioinformatics

Clustering is an important unsupervised classification technique where a set of patterns, usually vectors in multidimensional space, are grouped into clusters based on some similarity or dissimilarity criteria. In crisp clustering, each pattern is assigned to exactly one cluster, whereas in fuzzy clustering, each pattern is given a...

Yeast as a Tool in Cancer Research
Yeast as a Tool in Cancer Research

Leland H. Hartwell Director, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Nobel Laureate for Medicine, 2001 Yeast has proved to be the most useful single-celled organism for studying the fundamental aspects of cell biology. Resources are now available for yeast that greatly simplify and empower new investigations, like the presence of strains with...
