I was asked by a colleague to write a chapter for a book he was editing, Big Data Analysis for Bioinformatics and Biomedical Discoveries. My chapter was “R for Big Data Analysis.” It just about killed me to write that chapter, but I got it done about nine months ago, and now the book is out officially.
You can find out more about the book at the CRC Press website. It costs $120 which seems like a lot, but when you average across the 16 chapters, my contribution is well worth the $7.50 that you would pay for it.
It’s also available on Amazon, where you can save three dollars off the list price. Currently the book is ranked #1,125,290 in sales. The Amazon page does have a nice biography of the editor, Shui Qing Ye.
I’ve got a picture of the cover.
