From the book reviews:“This book is an excellent collection of 20 chapters presenting the state of art (as of 2014) of algorithms developed for the analysis of next generation sequencing (NGS) data. … This book is a valuable and well-timed collection of articles on the statistical methods that can be applied on NGS data. Even if no prior NGS knowledge is required, the book is addressed mainly to researchers at postgraduate and post-doc levels.” (Irina Ioana Mohorianu, zbMATH, Vol. 1297, 2014)
