Textbook – Statistical Methods in Bioinformatics

August 14, 2012

(This article was first published on John Ramey, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

As part of my effort to acquaint myself more with biology, bioinformatics, and statistical genetics, I am trying to find as many resources as I can that provide a solid foundation. For instance, I am wading through Molecular Biology of the Cell at a pace of about 10-15 pages per day – this takes nearly an hour every day.

I am also going through Statistical Methods in Bioinformatics by Ewens and Grant and working selected problems for each chapter. My intention is to post my solutions to these chapter exercises. Thus far, I have made it through the first three chapters, and I will begin posting my solutions soon. I am interested particularly in problems regarding statistical topics with which I have little-to-no experience and also topics where I lack intuition regarding the biological applications.

Here is a thumbnail of the book:
