Computational genome analysis an introduction by Richard C Deonier ( )
16 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Computational Genome Analysis: An Introduction presents the foundations of key problems in computational molecular biology and bioinformatics. It focuses on computational and statistical principles applied to genomes, and introduces the mathematics and statistics that are crucial for understanding these applications. This book is appropriate for a one-semester course for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students, and it can also introduce computational biology to computer scientists, mathematicians, or biologists who are extending their interests into this exciting field."--Jacket
Lectures on probability theory and statistics : Ecole d'été de probabilités de Saint-Flour XXXI, 2001 by Simon Tavaré ( Book )
19 editions published in 2004 in English and German and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Logarithmic combinatorial structures : a probabilistic approach by Richard Arratia ( Book )
9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book explains the similarities in asymptotic behaviour as the result of two basic properties shared by the structures: the conditioning relation and the logarithmic condition. The discussion is conducted in the language of probability, enabling the theory to be developed under rather general and explicit conditions; for the finer conclusions, Stein's method emerges as the key ingredient. The book is thus of particular interest to graduate students and researchers in both combinatorics and probability theory."--BOOK JACKET
Progress in population genetics and human evolution by Workshop on Mathematical Population Genetics ( Book )

Computing for comparative microbial genomics bioinformatics for microbiologists by Gordon Grippen ( )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This reference provides a coherent set of tools and a methodological framework for comparing raw DNA sequences and fully annotated genome sequences, then using these to build up and test models about groups of interacting organisms within an environment or ecological niche

Estimation in the Mixture Transition Distribution Model for High Order Markov Chains ( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The mixture transition distribution (MTD) model was introduced by Raftery (1985) as a parsimonious model for high-order Markov chains. It is flexible, can represent a wide range of dependence patterns, can be physically motivated, fits data well, and appears to be a discrete-valued analogue for the class of autoregressive time series models. However, estimation has presented difficulties because the parameter space is highly nonconvex, being defined by a large number of nonlinear constraints. Here we propose an efficient computational algorithm for maximum likelihood estimation which is based on a way of reducing the large number of constraints. This also allows more structured versions of the model, for example those involving structural zeros, to be fit quite easily. A way of fitting the model using GLIM is also discussed. The algorithm is applied to a sequence of wind directions, and also to two sequences of DNA bases from introns from genes of the mouse. In each case, the MTD model fits better than the conventional Markov chain model
