Abstract

The analysis of biomarker data often requires the proper application of statistical methods that are typically not covered in introductory statistics textbooks. In this chapter, we use examples from the biomarker literature to illustrate some of the challenges faced in handling data from biomarker studies and describe methods for the appropriate analysis and interpretation of these data.
