Reviews

“This book puts together a nice collection of statistical methods covering a wide range of research topics in computational biology. … I can recommend the book as an overview on methods applied in computational biology for readers already experienced in basic computational statistics. Especially readers interested in systems biology topics will find a comprehensive summary of methods.” (Marc Zapatka, Biometrical Journal, Vol. 55 (4), 2013)
