About these proceedings


Genetics mapping, physical mapping and DNA sequencing are the three key components of the human and other genome projects. Statistics, mathematics and computing play important roles in all three, as well as in the uses to which the mapping and sequencing data are put. This volume edited by key researchers Mike Waterman and Terry Speed reviews recent progress in the area, with an emphasis on the theory and application of genetic mapping.
