Chapter 3 Statistics for Genomics

This chapter will summarize statistics methods frequently used in computational genomics. As these fields are continuously evolving, the techniques introduced here do not form an exhaustive list but mostly cornerstone methods that are often and still being used. In addition, we focused on giving intuitive and practical understanding of the methods with relevant examples from the field. If you want to dig deeper into statistics and math, beyond what is described here, we included appropriate references with annotation after each major section.
