About this book

This volume presents the results of biological and medical research with the statistical methods used to obtain them. Nowadays the fields of biology and experimental medicine rely on techniques for the processing of experimental data and for the evaluation of hypotheses. Thus it is increasingly necessary to stimulate awareness of the importance, variety and flexibility of statistical techniques (and of the possible traps that they can hide) by using real data in concrete situations drawn from research activity, instead of hypothetical examples. The approaches taken to deal with the various topics in the book may seem disparate, and the heterogeneity is quite apparent.

From the reviews: "The present book is designed to provide a useful presentation of thirteen detailed, well written papers in applied Bayesian statistical methods used in biological and medical research. ! the aim of this book is to present a consistent and self-contained overview on results ! . The book is of interest to research workers, teachers and students in applied statistics, medicine, genetics, biology, ethology and physical anthropology." (Cryssoula Ganatsiou, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1094 (20), 2006)
