    Aims and Scope

    Statistical Applications in Genetics and Molecular Biology seeks to publish significant research on the application of statistical ideas to problems arising from computational biology. The focus of the papers should be on the relevant statistical issues but should contain a succinct description of the relevant biological problem being considered. The range of topics is wide and will include topics such as linkage mapping, association studies, gene finding and sequence alignment, protein structure prediction, design and analysis of microarray data, molecular evolution and phylogenetic trees, DNA topology, and data base search strategies. Both original research and review articles will be warmly received.

    What scholars are saying about Statistical Applications in Genetics and Molecular Biology

    “This journal will keep statisticians up to date on the thinking behind the development and validation of molecular biology based classifiers for diagnostic testing for use in such areas as early detection of disease or recurrence, risk stratification, prognosis, prediction of treatment response, monitoring, and drug dosing.”

    Gene Pennello, Ph.D., Center for Devices and Radiological Health, FDA

    “Statistical applications in Genetics and Genomics are very important areas of research. This journal is one of the high-quality journals that I use, and that my students use as well.”
