The Handbook for Statistical Genetics is widely regarded asthe reference work in the field. However, the field hasdeveloped considerably over the past three years. In particular themodeling of genetic networks has advanced considerably via theevolution of microarray analysis. As a consequence the 3rd editionof the handbook contains a much expanded section on NetworkModeling, including 5 new chapters covering metabolic networks,graphical modeling and inference and simulation of pedigrees andgenealogies. Other chapters new to the 3rd edition include HumanPopulation Genetics, Genome-wide Association Studies, Family-basedAssociation Studies, Pharmacogenetics, Epigenetics, Ethic andInsurance.
As with the second Edition, the Handbook includes a glossary ofterms, acronyms and abbreviations, and features extensivecross-referencing between the chapters, tying the different areastogether. With heavy use of up-to-date examples, real-life casestudies and references to web-based resources, this continues to bemust-have reference in a vital area of research.
