From the book reviews:
“This book is an excellent collection of 20 chapters presenting the state of art (as of 2014) of algorithms developed for the analysis of next generation sequencing (NGS) data. … This book is a valuable and well-timed collection of articles on the statistical methods that can be applied on NGS data. Even if no prior NGS knowledge is required, the book is addressed mainly to researchers at postgraduate and post-doc levels.” (Irina Ioana Mohorianu, zbMATH, Vol. 1297, 2014)
From the Back Cover
Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is the latest high throughput technology to revolutionize genomic research. NGS generates massive genomic datasets that play a key role in the big data phenomenon that surrounds us today. To extract signals from high-dimensional NGS data and make valid statistical inferences and predictions, novel data analytic and statistical techniques are needed. This book contains 20 chapters written by prominent statisticians working with NGS data. The topics range from basic preprocessing and analysis with NGS data to more complex genomic applications such as copy number variation and isoform expression detection. Research statisticians who want to learn about this growing and exciting area will find this book useful. In addition, many chapters from this book could be included in graduate-level classes in statistical bioinformatics for training future biostatisticians who will be expected to deal with genomic data in basic biomedical research, genomic clinical trials and personalized medicine.
