Bayesian Computation (ABC) is becoming a standard part of the statistician’s toolbox. In this talk I will outline what ABC is about, how it arose, and what it can (and cannot) do. I will illustrate the approach with an example from cancer biology, and I will highlight some open statistical problems that might interest research students. No previous knowledge of cancer biology is needed to understand the talk.
