The Encyclopedia of Biostatistics offers support to scientists, practitioners and policy makers in the development and use of statistical methods for addressing the problems and critical issues in the life and medical sciences.

This new edition will find widespread application in basic medical science; the planning, financing and distribution of health care; and the measurement of health care status and progress in the population.

Key topics are now completely up to date and comprehensive. Among the areas receiving increased attention are Bayesian methodology and applications, and modeling the spread of infectious diseases and the development of epidemics. In addition the Encyclopedia now includes many contributions that focus on the rapid growth of bioinformatics and its pivotal role in studying the human genome.

Give the Encyclopedia of Biostatistics a try.  If you find it is a useful resource, let your liaison or personal librarian know.
