Survival Analysis in Medicine and Genetics, Hardback Book

Description

Using real data sets throughout, Survival Analysis in Medicine and Genetics introduces the latest methods for analyzing high-dimensional survival data.

It provides thorough coverage of recent statistical developments in the medical and genetics fields.

The text mainly addresses special concerns of the survival model.

After covering the fundamentals, it discusses interval censoring, nonparametric and semiparametric hazard regression, multivariate survival data analysis, the sub-distribution method for competing risks data, the cure rate model, and Bayesian inference methods.

The authors then focus on time-dependent diagnostic medicine and high-dimensional genetic data analysis.

Many of the methods are illustrated with clinical examples. Emphasizing the applications of survival analysis techniques in genetics, this book presents a statistical framework for burgeoning research in this area and offers a set of established approaches for statistical analysis.

It reveals a new way of looking at how predictors are associated with censored survival time and extracts novel statistical genetic methods for censored survival time outcome from the vast amount of research results in genomics.
