Immunoinformatics of Cancers: Practical Machine Learning Approaches Using R takes a bioinformatics approach to understanding and researching the immunological aspects of malignancies. It details biological and computational principles and the current applications of bioinformatic approaches in the study of human malignancies. Three sections cover the role of immunology in cancers and bioinformatics, including databases and tools, R programming and useful packages, and present the foundations of machine learning. The book then gives practical examples to illuminate the application of immunoinformatics to cancer, along with practical details on how computational and biological approaches can best be integrated.

This book provides readers with practical computational knowledge and techniques, including programming, and machine learning, enabling them to understand and pursue the immunological aspects of malignancies.
