Summary
Biostatistics with R is designed around the dynamic interplay among statistical methods, their applications in biology, and their implementation.¡ The book explains basic statistical concepts with a simple yet rigorous language.¡ The development of ideas is in the context of real applied problems, for which step-by-step instructions for using R and R-Commander are provided.¡ Topics include data exploration, estimation, hypothesis testing, linear regression analysis, and clustering with two appendices on installing and using R and R-Commander.¡ A novel feature of this book is an elementary introduction to the basic of Bayesian analysis. This author discusses basic statistical analysis through a series of biological examples using R and R-Commander as computational tools.¡ The book is ideal for instructors of basic statistics for biologists and other health scientists.¡ The step-by-step application of statistical methods discussed in this book allows readers, who are interested in statistics and its application in biology, to use the book as a self-learning text.¡
