Abstract

Gene expression profiling using micro-arrays is a modern approach for molecular diagnostics. In clinical micro-array studies, researchers aim to predict disease type, survival, or treatment response using gene expression profiles. In this process, they encounter a series of obstacles and pitfalls. This chapter reviews fundamental issues from machine learning and recommends a procedure for the computational aspects of a clinical micro-array study.
