Frontiers in Computational and Systems Biology
Written in honor of Prof. Minping Qian’s 70th birthday, this book provides an up-to-date survey of the current research and applications of statistics and probability in molecular and system biology, provided by leading experts in their fields. Each chapter comprises both theoretical aspects, applications to biological problems, and future possible developments. Understanding the biology at a molecular and system level stands among the most exciting and difficult challenges faced by modern science. The book clearly demonstrates how computational and theoretical approaches have helped to meet that challenge.
Reviews the current hot topics in computational biology and system biology, using probability and statistics as mathematical toolsWith contributions by towering figures in the field from across the globe, including Prof. Michael Waterman and Prof. Terry Speed
