Statistical Theory and Methods for Evolutionary Genomics

Xun Gu

Abstract

Evolutionary genomics is a relatively new research field with the ultimate goal of understanding the underlying evolutionary and genetic mechanisms for the emergence of genome complexity under changing environments. It stems from an integration of high throughput data from functional genomics, statistical modelling and bioinformatics, and the procedure of phylogeny-based analysis. This book summarises the statistical framework of evolutionary genomics, and illustrates how statistical modelling and testing can enhance our understanding of functional genomic evolution. The book reviews the recen ... More

Keywords: evolutionary genomics, functional genomics, statistical modelling, bioinformatics, phylogeny-based analysis, DNA sequences, microarray, evolution
