This chapter provides an overview of emerging bioinformatics methods for the biomarker discovery process and medical decision support. It introduces study design consideration and bioanalytic concepts for generating biomedical data, followed by various data mining and information retrieval procedures such as feature selection, classification as well as statistical and clinical validation. The reviewed methods are illustrated by real examples from preclinical and clinical studies, and the application in medical decision making is discussed. This chapter is anticipated to address to those with a bioinformatics background as well as biomedical researchers who are interested in the application of computational methods in biomarker discovery and medical decision making.
