Summary:Integrated bioinformatics solutions have become increasingly valuable in past years, as technological advances have allowed researchers to consider the potential of omics for clinical diagnosis, prognosis, and therapeutic purposes, and as the costs of such techniques have begun to lessen. In Bioinformatics Methods in Clinical Research, experts examine the latest developments impacting clinical omics, and describe in great detail the algorithms that are currently used in publicly available software tools. Chapters discuss statistics, algorithms, automated methods of data retrieval, and experimental consideration in genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, each chapter contains a brief introduction, provides practical examples illustrating methods, results, and conclusions from data mining strategies wherever possible, and includes a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Informative and ground-breaking, Bioinformatics Methods in Clinical Research establishes a much-needed bridge between theory and practice, making it an indispensable resource for bioinformatics researchers
