advancements in computer technology, and the rapid growth of life science data have
promoted the formation of modern biostatistics. This book is written for researchers,
biostatisticians/statisticians,and scientists who are interested in quantitative analyses.
The goal is to introduce modern methods in biostatistics and help researchers and
students quickly grasp key concepts and methods. Many methods can solve the same
