Summary This groundbreaking resource on biomedical informatics gives you step-by-step insight into innovative techniques for integrating and federating data from clinical and high-throughput molecular study platforms as well as from the public domain. It details how to apply computational and statistical technologies to clinical, genomic, and proteomic studies to enhance data collection, tracking, storage, visualization, analysis, and knowledge discovery processes, and to translate knowledge from ""bench to bedside"" and ""bedside to bench"" with never-before efficiency. Filling the need for informatic
