Statistical Methods in Genetic Epidemiology

Duncan C. Thomas

This balanced and well-integrated text gives a lucid overview of the entire process of genetic epidemiology, from familial aggregation through segregation, likage, and association studies. It is illustrated throughout with examples from the literature on cancer genetics. Statistical concepts are developed in depth, but with a focus on applications. Introductory chapters on molecular biology, Mendelian genetics, epidemiology, statistics, and population genetics are included. Oriented to graduate students in biostatistics, epidemiology, and human genetics, the book will also be a useful reference for researchers. It gives equal emphasis to study designs and data analysis.
