This volume discusses the latest developments in clinical proteomics and describes in detail the algorithms used in publicly available software tools. It should be considered as a proteomics-bioinformatics resource and offers the opportunity to understand the details of the various publicly available algorithms.

From the reviews: "This volume of Methods in Molecular Biology provides an overview of the recent improvements in the use of bioinformatics in clinical research. ! All chapters provide pertinent examples. ! The book is intended primarily for scientists involved in biomedical informatics (computational biologists, biostatisticians, computer scientists) who are active in the field of clinical research. This includes both first-time and seasoned students and biomedical researchers who are interested in using bioinformatics. ! It also presents a number of valuable approaches currently in use."
