Multiblock Data Fusion in Statistics and Machine Learning Explore the advantages and shortcomings of various forms of multiblock analysis, and the relationships between them, with this expert guide Arising out of fusion problems that exist in a variety of fields in the natural and life sciences, the methods available to fuse multiple data sets have expanded dramatically in recent years. Older methods, rooted in psychometrics and chemometrics, also exist. Multiblock Data Fusion in Statistics and Machine Learning: Applications in the Natural and Life Sciences is a detailed overview of all relevant multiblock data analysis methods for fusing multiple data sets. It focuses on methods based on components and latent variables, including both well-known and lesser-known methods with potential applications in different types of problems. Many of the included methods are illustrated by practical examples and are accompanied by a freely available R-package. The distinguished authors have created an accessible and useful guide to help readers fuse data, develop new data fusion models, discover how the involved algorithms and models work, and understand the advantages and shortcomings of various approaches. This book includes: A thorough introduction to the different options available for the fusion of multiple data sets, including methods originating in psychometrics and chemometrics Practical discussions of well-known and lesser-known methods with applications in a wide variety of data problems Included, functional R-code for the application of many of the discussed methods Perfect for graduate students studying data analysis in the context of the natural and life sciences, including bioinformatics, sensometrics, and chemometrics, Multiblock Data Fusion in Statistics and Machine Learning: Applications in the Natural and Life Sciences is also an indispensable resource for developers and users of the results of multiblock methods.

Principles in Microbiome Engineering Provides an overview of the techniques and applications insight into the complex composition and interactions of microbiomes Microbiomes, the communities of microorganisms that inhabit specific ecosystems or organisms, can be engineered to modify the structure of microbiota and reestablish ecological balance. In recent years, a better understanding of microbial composition and host-microbe interactions has led to the development of new applications for improving human health and increasing agricultural productivity and quality. Principles in Microbiome Engineering introduces readers to the tools and applications involved in manipulating the composition of a microbial community to improve the function of an eco-system. Covering a range of key topics, this up-to-date volume discusses current research in areas such as microbiome-based therapeutics for human diseases, crop plant breeding, animal husbandry, soil engineering, food and beverage applications, and more. Divided into three sections, the text first describes the critical roles of systems biology, synthetic biology, computer modelling, and machine learning in microbiome engineering. Next, the volume explores various state-of-the-art applications, including cancer immunotherapy and prevention of diseases associated with the human microbiome, followed by a concluding section offering perspectives on the future of microbiome engineering and potential applications. Introduces a variety of applications of microbiome engineering in the fields of medicine, agriculture, and food and beverage products Presents current research into the complex interactions and relationships between microbiomes and biotic and abiotic elements of their environments Examines the use of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Big Data analytics to advance understanding of microbiomes Discusses the engineering of microbiomes to address human health conditions such as neuro psychiatric disorders and autoimmune and inflammatory diseases Edited and authored by leading researchers in the rapidly evolving field, Principles in Microbiome Engineering is an essential resource for biotechnologists, biochemists, microbiologists, pharmacologists, and practitioners working in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
