About this book

Thedevelopmentoftechnologiesforhigh–throughputmeasurementofgene expression in biological system is providing powerful new tools for inv- tigating the transcriptome on a genomic scale, and across diverse biol- ical systems and experimental designs. This technological transformation is generating an increasing demand for data analysis in biological inv- tigations of gene expression. This book focuses on data analysis of gene expression microarrays. The goal is to provide guidance to practitioners in deciding which statistical approaches and packages may be indicated for their projects, in choosing among the various options provided by those packages, and in correctly interpreting the results. The book is a collection of chapters written by authors of statistical so- ware for microarray data analysis. Each chapter describes the conceptual and methodological underpinning of data analysis tools as well as their software implementation, and will enable readers to both understand and implement an analysis approach. Methods touch on all aspects of statis- cal analysis of microarrays, from annotation and ?ltering to clustering and classi?cation. All software packages described are free to academic users. The materials presented cover a range of software tools designed for varied audiences. Some chapters describe simple menu-driven software in a user-friendly fashion and are designed to be accessible to microarray data analystswithoutformalquantitativetraining.Mostchaptersaredirectedat microarray data analysts with master’s-level training in computer science, biostatistics, or bioinformatics. A minority of more advanced chapters are intended for doctoral students and researchers.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This useful book about methods and software for microarray data analysis is written by the developers. The goal of the book is to provide guidance to practitioners in the techniques of analysis and programs. The book combines the advantages of both a tutorial in methods and catalogue for software. Procedures are described and their implementations illustrated. All of the software described is freely available to academic users...The table of contents indicates the encyclopedic coverage, spanning a very broad spectrum of methods. The collection is introduced with an informative overview. While the authors acknowledge the formative stage of current work, they have provided a useful guide to the here and now." ISI Short Book Reviews, Vol. 23/3, August 2003

"The opening chapter contributed by the editors is an excellent overview of the field and the threads that make it up...There is a definite hands-on character to all the presentations. Generally, each contributor selected a different but interesting set of data to demonstrate the approach." Journal of Statsitical Software, April 2005

"The editors state that the goal of this book is ‘to provide guidance to practitioners in deciding which statistical approaches and packages may be indicated for their projects … . All chapters contain clear directions for installing and using the presented packages. … For the practitioner of microarray data analysis, this book contains a wealth of readily available tools. For the statistician who wants to get acquainted with this rapidly evolving area, the book offers a glimpse of current problems and methods … ." (Ricardo A. Maronna, Statistical Papers, Vol. 45 (2), 2004)

"This volume provides a summary of many of the issues and software that are available. … This is a welcome volume. The first chapter provides a wonderful introduction to the field. The later chapters are more specialised. These chapters are good references to the individual programs and methods and can be used to find links to the major software for microarray analysis." (Peter A. Lachenbruch, ISCB Newsletter, Issue 38, December, 2004)

Andrews, Short Book Reviews, Vol. 23 (2), 2003)

"This book is a collection of papers on statistical techniques for gene expression data. … The book is well written and I enjoyed reading the book. … The chapters that discuss the same statistical topics often have different approaches or focuses on the type of arrays. This makes it worthwhile to read the sections on a particular topic in all chapters. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in or performing the analysis of microarray data." (dr E. R. van den Heuvel, Kwantitatieve Methoden, April, 2004)

"Gene expression microarray technology was introduced in 1995, but it is only in 1998 that the scientific community started using this tool … . Writing a book on such a novel subject matter … is not a simple task. … ‘The Analysis of Gene Expression Data: Methods and Software’ appears as a successful attempt. … this book succeeds in the not trivial task of providing an informative, accessible, overall picture of the contributions of statisticians to the analysis of microarray data." (Chiara Sabatti, Statistics in Medicine, Vol. 23, 2004)
