Due to the tremendous accumulation of data for genetic markers, pharmacogenomics, the study of the functions and interactions of all genes in the overall variability of drug response, is one of the hottest areas of research in biomedical science. Statistical and Computational Pharmacogenomics presents recent developments in statistical methodology with a number of detailed worked examples that outline how these methods can be applied. This comprehensive volume provides key tools needed to understand and model the genetic variation for drug response and equips statisticians with a thorough understanding of this complex field and how computational skills can be employed.
