Flora of the Pacific Northwest : An Illustrated Manual, Second Edition

Thanks to all the people who worked and contributed to this very fine flora. I have been waiting a long time for it. My old blue copy is beat up and full of hand written notes.

Microarray Analysis: Biochips and Eradication of all Disease

Microarray Analysis is a natural outgrowth of the author’s teaching and research into the fi eld of microarray processing, a fast growing and developing fi eld. There has been a reduction in the genominomics of sequencing of DNA and proteins: from $3 billion in HGP costs down to $1000 per genome in 2014 using next-generation sequencers. Different sequencing methods in place and various applications of these methods are illustrated. Com...

The humongous book of statistics problems (Humongous Books)

This book was not around in the 80's when I went to college or I would be a statistician today. Seriously though, I developed an interest in statistics after 30 years as a software engineer. Now retired - I have time to learn and this book is a great help. With books like this you can learn this stuff on your own. I have been reading up on the history of statistics & probability - that too is an interesting study...makes learning...
