Analysis of Phylogenetics and Evolution with R (Use R!)

Buy
Phylogenetics is the science of the evolutionary relationships among species. Recently, the term has come to include broader issues such as estimating rates of evolution, dating divergence among species, reconstructing ancestral characters, or quantifying adaptation, all these using phylogenies as frameworks.

Computers seem to have been used by phylogeneticists as soon they were available in research departments [62, 63]. Since then, progress has been obvious in two parallel directions: biological databases, particularly for molecular sequences, have increased in quantity at an exponential rate and, at the same time, computing power has grown at an expanding pace. These concurrent escalations have resulted in the challenge of analyzing larger and larger data sets using more and more complex methods.

The current complexity of phylogenetic analyses implies some strategic choices. This chapter explains the advantages of R as a system for phylogenetic analyses.

Bayesian Networks in R: with Applications in Systems Biology (Use R!)
Bayesian Networks in R: with Applications in Systems Biology (Use R!)
While there have been significant advances in capturing data from the entities across complex real-world systems, their associations and relationships are largely unknown. Associations between the entities may reveal interesting system-level properties that may not be apparent otherwise. Often these associations are hypothesized...

Numerical Methods for the Life Scientist: Binding and Enzyme Kinetics Calculated with GNU Octave and MATLAB
Numerical Methods for the Life Scientist: Binding and Enzyme Kinetics Calculated with GNU Octave and MATLAB

Enzyme kinetics, binding kinetics and pharmacological dose-response curves are currently analyzed by a few standard methods. Some of these, like Michaelis-Menten enzyme kinetics, use plausible approximations, others, like Hill equations for dose-response curves, are outdated. Calculating realistic reaction schemes requires numerical...
