Survival Guide for the Life Sciences is an essential reference for anyone who has a fear of or weak background in the mathematics, statistics and computing. This book provides all the background required to read and understand studies in the life sciences - especially biology and biochemistry. Mathematics, statistics and computing have become increasingly important in biological literature, but readers often lack the technical information necessary to fully comprehend the subject matter. Until now there has been no resource that provides readers with the mathematical background that is specific to working in and reading about the life sciences. Alan Cann is a biologist writing for individuals reading biological literature, who are intimidated by the mathematics necessary to fully understand it. This unique, informal, jargon-busting reference enables readers to perform everyday calculations with confidence and ease. It is designed to emphasize how to read and work in a biological context, rather than via mathematical theory, so it is accessible to anyone lacking mathematical sophistication.
