About this book

Today, anyone who attempts to read genetics or epidemiology research literature intelligently, needs to understand the essentials of biostatistics. This book - a revised new edition of the successful 'Essentials of Biostatistics' - has been written to provide such an understanding to those who have little or no statistical background and who need to keep abreast of new findings in this fast moving field.

Unlike many other elementary books of biostatistics, the main focus of this book is not so much teaching how to perform some of the simpler statistical procedures that may be necessary for a research paper, but rather on explaining basic and fundamental concepts without getting bogged down in computational details.

Written at an elementary mathematical level so that readers with high school mathematics will find the content accessible. Graduate students studying genetic epidemiology, researchers and practitioners from genetics, epidemiology, biology, medical research and statistics will find this an invaluable introduction to statistics.
