Introduction to Computer-Intensive Methods of Data Analysis in Biology by Derek A. Roff

Book Description

This 2006 guide to the contemporary toolbox of methods for data analysis will serve graduate students and researchers across the biological sciences. Modern computational tools, such as Maximum Likelihood, Monte Carlo and Bayesian methods, mean that data analysis no longer depends on elaborate assumptions designed to make analytical approaches tractable. These new 'computer-intensive' methods are currently not consistently available in statistical software packages and often require more detailed instructions. The purpose of this book therefore is to introduce some of the most common of these methods by providing a relatively simple description of the techniques. Examples of their application are provided throughout, using real data taken from a wide range of biological research. A series of software instructions for the statistical software package S-PLUS are provided along with problems and solutions for each chapter.

Books By Author Derek A. Roff

Modeling Evolution by Derek A. Roff Modeling Evolution, Paperback (December 2009)

Computer modeling is now an integral part of research in evolutionary biology. This book outlines how evolutionary questions are formulated and how, in practice, they can be resolved by analytical and numerical methods.

Introduction to Computer-Intensive Methods of Data Analysis in Biology by Derek A. Roff Introduction to Computer-Intensive Methods of Data Analysis in Biology, Paperback (May 2006)

A 2006 graduate level introduction to modern computational tools for the analysis of biological data using S-PLUS.

Life History Evolution by Derek A. Roff Life History Evolution, Paperback (January 2002)

This text represents a synthetic approach to the understanding of the evolution of life history variation using the three types of environment (constant, stochastic, predictable) as the focus under which the theory is developed and tested. Each chapter includes a summary.

Evolutionary Ecology by Derek A. Roff Evolutionary Ecology, Paperback (October 2001)

Unifies conceptual and empirical advances in evolutionary ecology. This volume is divided into five major sections: an overview of the major topics in evolutionary biology for ecologists, and sections on life histories, behaviour, co-evolution, and adaptation to athropogenic change.
