From the reviews:
"…well written and can be appreciated by those with little biology background…In general, I found many of the papers collected in this book interesting…readers who are interested in applying Bayesian analysis in real case studies may find this book useful. One might consider using this book as supplementary material in graduate-level seminar courses on Bayesian data analysis."
Journal of the American Statistical Association, June 2004
"The volume as a whole illustrates the range of models that can now be fitted following the Markov chain Monte Carlo revolution, assess the behavior of posterior summaries under model misspecifications."--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
