&i;"This is a thoroughly delightful and scholarly tour through the theory and application of probability and statistics in biology. The reader will learn much about the fundamentals of stochastic prcesses, as well as much about the biology itself. The best of mathematical biology."&o; - Simon Levin, Princeton University
An excellent introduction to the uses of probability theory for a reader who is more familiar with biology than with mathematics ... Denny and Gaines have done a valuable service to biologists who are interested in a quantitative approach to life sciences. -- Paul Janmey Nature Cell Biology A lively, well-written text... A student who reads this book closely will come away with a much deeper appreciation for the universality of diffusion mechanics in science, the deep connections between the distributions central to inferential statistics, the importance of extreme events and how to deal with them analytically, and, most importantly, the power and limitations inherent in the underpinning of the inferential statistics that the student has learned elsewhere. -- Mark R. Patterson American Scientist This is a fantastic book. Indeed, one would be hard-pressed to find a more readable and lucid introduction to probability theory. -- Gary B. Gillis Journal of Experimental Biology
