Title:For Better or For Worse? Collaborative Couples in the Sciences [electronic resource]
Author(s): Annette Lykknes
Donald L Opitz
Brigitte Van Tiggelen
Date:2012
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this volume, a distinguished set of international scholars examine the nature of collaboration between life partners in the sciences, with particular attention to the ways in which personal and professional dynamics can fosteror inhibit scientific practice. Breaking from traditional gender analyses which focus on divisions of labor and the assignment of credit, the studies scrutinize collaboration as a variable process between partners living in thenineteenth and twentieth centuries who were marri ed and divorced, heterosexual and homosexual, aristocratic and working-class and politically right and left. The contributors analyze cases shaped by their particular geographicallocations, ranging from retreat settings like the English countryside and Wo ods Hole, Massachusetts, to university laboratories and urbancenters in Berlin, Stockholm, Geneva and London. The volume demonstrates how the terms andmeanings of collaboration, variably shaped by disciplinary imperatives, cultural mores, and the agency o f the collaborators themselves, illuminate critical intellectual and institutional developments in the modern sciences

Title:Statistical Design [electronic resource]
Author(s): George Casella
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Although statistical design is one of the oldest branches of statistics, its importance is ever increasing, especially in the face of the data flood that often faces statisticians. It is important to recognize the appropriatedesign, and to understand how to effectively implement it, being aware that the default settings from a computer package can easily provide an incorrect analysis. The goal of this book is to describe the principles that drive gooddesign, paying attention to both the theoretical b ackground and the problems arising from real experimental situations. Designs are motivated through actual experiments, ranging from the timeless agricultural randomized complete block,to microarray experiments, which naturally lead to split plot designs and balanced incomplete blocks. George Casella is Distinguished Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Florida. He is active in many aspectsof statistics, having contributed to theoretical statistics in the areas of decision theory and statistical confidence, to environmental statistics, and has more recently concentrated efforts in statistical genomics. He also maintainsactive research interests in the theory and application of Monte Carlo and other computationally intensive metho ds. He is listed as an ISI Highly Cited Researcher. In other capacities, Professor Casella has served as Theory andMethods Editor of the Journal of the American Statistical Association, 1996-1999, Executive Editor of Statistical Science, 2001-2004, and Co -Editor of the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B, 2009-2012. He has served onthe Board of Mathematical Sciences of the National Research Council, 1999-2003, and many committees of both the American Statistical Association and the Institut e of Mathematical Statistics. Professor Casella has co-authored fivetextbooks: Variance Components, 1992 Theory of Point Estimation, Second Edition, 1998 Monte Carlo Statistical Methods, Second Edit

Title:Statistical Genetics of Quantitative Traits [electronic resource] : Linkage, Maps, and QTL
Author(s): Rongling Wu
George Casella
Chang-Xing Ma
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book introduces the basic concepts and methods that are useful in the statistical analysis and modeling of DNA-based marker and phenotypic data that arise in agriculture, forrestry, experimental biology, and other fields. Itconcentrates on the li nkage analysis of markers, map construction and quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping and assumes a background in regression analysis and maximum likelihood approaches. The strengths of this book lie in theconstruction of general models and algorithms fo r linkage analysis and QTL mapping in any kind of crossed pedigrees initiated with inbred lines of crops and plant and animal model systems or outbred lines in forest trees and wildlifespecies. The book includes a detailed description of each approach and the step-by-step demonstration of live-example analyses designed to explain the utilization and usefulness of statistical methods. The book also includes exercisesets and computer codes for all the analyses used. This book can serve as a textbook for gra duates and senior undergraduates in genetics, agronomy, forest biology, plant breeding and animal sciences. It will also be useful toresearchers and other professionals in the areas of statistics, biology and agriculture. Rongling Wu is Associate Professo r of Statistics at the University of Florida, Gainesville. He currently serves as Associate Editor for sixgenetics and bioinformatics journals. Chang-Xing Ma is Assistant Professor of Biostatistics at the State University of New York at Buffalo. George Ca sella is Distinguished Professor of Statistics and Distinguished Member of theGenetics Institute at the Univesity of Florida, Gainesville. He is a fellow of the American Statistical Association and the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, and the author of four other statistics books

Title:Statistical Methods in Molecular Evolution [electronic resource]
Author(s): Rasmus Nielsen
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the field of molecular evolution, inferences about past evolutionary events are made using molecular data from currently living species. With the availability of genomic data from multiple related species, molecular evolutionhas become one of the most active and fastest growing fields of study in genomics and bioinformatics. Most studies in molecular evolution rely heavily on statistical procedures based on stochastic process modelling and advancedcomputational methods including high-dimensional n umerical optimization and Markov Chain Monte Carlo. This book provides an overview of the statistical theory and methods used in studies of molecular evolution. It includes anintroductory section suitable for readers that are new to the field, a section d iscussing practical methods for data analysis, and more specialized sections discussing specific models and addressing statistical issues relating toestimation and model choice. The chapters are written by the leaders in the field and they will take the r eader from basic introductory material to the state-of the-art statistical methods. This book is suitable for statisticiansseeking to learn more about applications in molecular evolution and molecular evolutionary biologists with an interest in learning m ore about the theory behind the statistical methods applied in the field. The chapters of the bookassume no advanced mathematical skills beyond basic calculus, although familiarity with basic probability theory will help the reader. Most relevant statisti cal concepts are introduced in the book in the context of their application inmolecular evolution, and the book should be accessible for most biology graduate students with an interest in quantitative methods and theory. Rasmus Nielsen received his Ph.D. form the University of California at Berkeley in 1998 andafter a postdoc at Harvard University, he assumed a faculty position in Statistical Genomics at Cornell University. He is currently an Ole Rmer
