Chapman & Hall/CRC Biostatistics Series


About the Series

The primary objectives of the Chapman & Hall/CRC Biostatistics Series are to provide useful reference books for researchers and scientists in academia, industry, and government, and also to offer textbooks for undergraduate and graduate courses in the area of biostatistics and bioinformatics. The book series will provide comprehensive and unified presentations of statistical designs and analyses of important applications in biostatistics and bioinformatics, such as those in biological and biomedical research.

The scope of the series is wide, including applications of statistical methodology in biology, epidemiology, genetics, pharmaceutical science and clinical trials, public health, and medicine. The series is committed to providing easy to understand, state-of-the-art references and textbooks. In each volume, statistical concepts and methodologies will be illustrated through real world examples whenever possible.
