This book grew out of the need to teach bioinformatics to graduate
students. At the same time however, it is organized to appeal to a
wider audience. It should appeal to any biologist or computer
scientist who wants to know more about the statistical methods of the
field, as well as to a trained statistician who wishes to become
involved in bioinformatics. Only a basic understanding of biological
concepts is assumed, and all concepts are explained when used or can
be understood from the context. This book also describes some of the
main statistical applications in the field, including BLAST, gene
finding, and evolutionary inference, much of which has not yet been
summarized in an introductory textbook.
