Continuing advances in biomedical research and statistical methods call for a constant stream of updated, cohesive accounts of new developments so that the methodologies can be properly implemented in the biomedical field. Responding to this need, Computational Methods in Biomedical Research explores important current and emerging computational statistical methods that are used in biomedical research.

Written by active researchers in the field, this authoritative collection covers a wide range of topics. It introduces each topic at a basic level, before moving on to more advanced discussions of applications. The book begins with microarray data analysis, machine learning techniques, and mass spectrometry-based protein profiling. It then uses state space models to predict US cancer mortality rates and provides an overview of the application of multistate models in analyzing multiple failure times. The book also describes various Bayesian techniques, the sequential monitoring of randomization tests, mixed-effects models, and the classification rules for repeated measures data. The volume concludes with estimation methods for analyzing longitudinal data.

Supplying the knowledge necessary to perform sophisticated statistical analyses, this reference is a must-have for anyone involved in advanced biomedical and pharmaceutical research. It will help in the quest to identify potential new drugs for the treatment of a variety of diseases.
