No one is happy that it takes 10 years for a drug to reach the market, but now at last there is a new generation of research tools that can help cut time-consuming obstacles down to size. This trail-blazing resource on biomedical informatics provides researchers with innovative techniques for integrating and federating data from clinical and molecular studies. These methods enhance data collection, tracking, storage, visualization, analysis, and knowledge discovery processes, and enable researchers to translate knowledge from "bench to bedside" and "bedside to bench" with never-before speed and efficiency. Complete with examples demonstrating how to develop tools for specific biomedical informatics tasks, this volume will help all medical researchers manage data, expedite their efforts, and make the most of targeted basic research.
