Summary "This volume comprises the investigation of factors that may predict the response to treatment, outcome, and survival by exploring design considerations in molecular epidemiology; measurement issues in molecular epidemiology; methods of statistical inference used in molecular epidemiology; and a specific discussion and synopsis of these methods provides concrete examples drawn from primary research in cancer." "Covering design considerations, measurement issues, and methods of statistical inference, and filled with scientific tables, equations, and pictures, Molecular Epidemiology: Applications in Cancer and Other Human Diseases presents a solid, single-source foundation for conducting and interpreting molecular epidemiological studies."--Jacket
