Statistics and Informatics in Molecular Cancer Research

Carsten Wiuf and Claus L. Andersen


This book discusses novel advances in informatics and statistics in molecular cancer research. Through eight chapters it discusses specific topics in cancer research, talks about how the topics give rise to development of new informatics and statistics tools, and explains how the tools can be applied. The focus of the book is to provide an understanding of key concepts and tools, rather than focusing on technical issues. A main theme is the extensive use of array technologies in modern cancer research — gene expression and exon arrays, SNP and copy number arrays and methylation arrays — to der ... More

Keywords: cancer, informatics, array technology, gene expression, copy number, methylation, pathways
