Biometrics is a component of Encyclopedia of Mathematical Sciences in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

Biometry is a broad discipline covering all applications of statistics and mathematics to biology. The Theme Biometrics is divided into areas of expertise essential for a proper application of statistical and mathematical methods to contemporary biological problems. These volumes cover four main topics: Data Collection and Analysis, Statistical Methodology, Computation, Biostatistical Methods and Research Design and Selected Topics. These volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.

Susan Wilson is Professor and Head, Statistical Science Program, Centre for Mathematics and its Applications, School of Mathematical Sciences, and Co-Director, Centre for Bioinformation Science (joint with John Curtin School of Medical Research), at the Australian National University (ANU). She obtained her B.Sc. from the University of Sydney, followed by her Ph.D. from the ANU in 1972. Sue then spent two years as a Lecturer in the Department of Probability and Statistics at Sheffield University. She returned to ANU towards the end of 1974 and has since held a variety of positions there, both in some of the Statistical groupings, as well as at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health. Susan has over 150 publications in biometry and applied statistics, with a particular emphasis on statistical genetics/genomics. These papers have arisen from her extensive consulting experience in the biological, social, and medical sciences, leading to statistical modeling developments to answer substantive research questions in these disciplines. She is currently involved in the establishment of a bioinformatics research facility at ANU. Susan is an elected member of the International Statistical Institute, a Fellow of the American Statistical Association and a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS). She was President, International Biometric Society, 1999–2000 (Vice President, IBS, 1998, 2001). Currently she is Associate Editor, Annals of Human Genetics; Associate Editor, Computational Statistics and Data Analysis; Member, Editorial Board, Statistical Methods in Medical Research; Member, Conference Advisory Committee, IBS; Member, IMS Committee on Memorials; Member, IMS Nominations Committee; Member, Editorial Committee for the 6th edition of the ISI’s Dictionary of Statistical Terms.
