Introduction to Probability with R

Kenneth P. Baclawski, North Eastern University, Boston, MA, USA

Publication Date: 1/24/2008

Catalog #: C6521

ISBN: 9781420065213 Number of Pages: 384  

Based on a popular course taught by the late Gian-Carlo Rota of MIT, with many new topics covered as well, Introduction to Probability with R presents R programs and animations to provide an intuitive yet rigorous understanding of how to model natural phenomena from a probabilistic point of view. Although the R programs are small in length, they are just as sophisticated and powerful as longer programs in other languages. This brevity makes it easy for students to become proficient in R.

R Programming for Bioinformatics

Robert Gentleman, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA, USA

Publication Date: 7/11/2008

Catalog #: C6367

ISBN: 9781420063677 Number of Pages: 328  

Shows how R can be used to solve bioinformatics and computational biology problems

Due to its data handling and modeling capabilities as well as its flexibility, R is becoming the most widely used software in bioinformatics. R Programming for Bioinformatics explores the programming skills needed to use this software tool for the solution of bioinformatics and computational biology problems.

>From the co-developer of R and lead founder of the Bioconductor project

Drawing on the author's first-hand experiences as an expert in R, the book begins with coverage on the general properties of the R language, several unique programming aspects of R, and object-oriented programming in R. It presents methods for data input and output as well as database interactions. The author also examines different facets of string handling and manipulations, discusses the interfacing of R with other languages, and describes how to write software packages. He concludes with a discussion on the debugging and profiling of R code.

Hone your programming skills

With numerous examples and exercises, this practical guide focuses on developing R programming skills in order to tackle problems encountered in bioinformatics and computational biology
