Basic Biostatistics for Geneticists and Epidemiologists: A Practical Approach

JAMA. 2010;304(10):1129. doi:10.1001/jama.2010.1309

Application of statistical methods and the understanding of those essential perceptions have always been critical for epidemiologists. The same is now true for many human and medical geneticists. This book, intended to be accessible to readers with no more than a high school background (but with some intellectual insight), attempts to provide explanations of basic concepts needed to comprehend the epidemiologic and genetic literature. Little knowledge of algebra and no knowledge of calculus is presumed.
