Bioinformatics: A practical Guide to NCBI Databases and Sequence Alignments

mybook

Bioinformatics: A Practical Guide to NCBI Databases and Sequence Alignments provides the basics of bioinformatics and in-depth coverage of NCBI databases, sequence alignment, and NCBI Sequence Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST). As bioinformatics has become essential for life sciences, the book has been written specifically to address the need of a large audience including undergraduates, graduates, researchers, healthcare professionals, and bioinformatics professors who need to use the NCBI databases, retrieve data from them, and use BLAST to find evolutionarily related sequences, sequence annotation, construction of phylogenetic tree, and the conservative domain of a protein, to name just a few. Technical details of alignment algorithms are explained with a minimum use of mathematical formulas and with graphical illustrations.

Statistical Modeling, Linear Regression and ANOVA, A Practical Computational Perspective

mybook

Statistical modeling is a branch of advanced statistics and a critical component of many applications in science and business. This book is an attempt to satisfy the need of mathematical statisticians and computational students in linear modeling and ANOVA. This book addresses linear modeling from a computational perspective with an emphasis on the mathematical details and step-by-step calculations using SASĀ® PROC IML. This book covers correlation analysis, simple and multiple linear regression, polynomial regression, regression with correlated data, model selection, analysis of covariance (ANCOVA), and analysis of variance (ANOVA). The level is suitable for upper level undergraduate and graduate students with knowledge of linear algebra and some programming skills.
