Statistical concepts and methods play an important role in bioinformatics. The scale and complexity of typical bioinformatics data sets poses both challenges and opportunities for existing statistical theory. In this talk, basic statistical concepts will be reviewed and their use in bioinformatics applications will be illustrated.
