Evolutionary Bioinformatics

Evolutionary Bioinformatics goals to make the "new" information-based (rather than gene-based) bioinformatics intelligible either to the "bio" humans and the "info" humans. Books on bioinformatics have routinely served gene-hunters, and biologists who desire to build kin bushes exhibiting tidy strains of descent.

302 The three dots in the numerator represent the values we did not show in order to save space. General Formula for the Mean It will be convenient if we can generalize the procedure for obtaining the mean and, also, represent the procedure in a more compact notational form. Let us begin by designating the random variable of interest by the capital letter X. In our present illustration we let X represent the random variable, age. Specific values of a random variable will be designated by the lowercase letter x.
