Cancer Informatics in Post-Genomic Era provides both the necessary methodology and practical information tools for analyzing data in the field of medical information science. This, of course, requires analytic tools. Those tools are garnered by developing and assessing methods and systems for the acquisition, processing, and interpretation of patient data, aided by scientific discovery. Key challenges in this field include integrating research and clinical care, sharing data, and establishing partnerships within and across sectors of patient diagnosis and treatment.
