Analysis and Prediction of Cancer using Genome by Applying Data Mining Algorithms” is a comprehensive book that delves into the crucial intersection of genomics and data mining techniques in the fight against cancer. The book explores the significance of the genome as the complete sequence of DNA containing all essential genes for building and maintaining an organism. It emphasizes the potential of data mining, an interdisciplinary field of computer science and algorithms, to extract meaningful patterns from large genomic datasets.
The book presents cutting-edge research work that applies data mining algorithms, including supervised and unsupervised learning, to cancer datasets obtained from reputable sources such as the Bioconductor website and R packages. The primary focus is on cancer prediction and identification of cancer types and subtypes through classification and clustering methods.
