TL22: Methods for Developing and Validating Diagnostic Tests
*Lori A Christman, STATKING Clinical Services 


Discussion will focus on the development and validation of diagnostic tests using biomarker data. Topics may include model development methods such as discriminant analysis, logistic regression, and support vector machines. Also of interest are various validation methods such as cross validation and the use of independent test data. See Dziuda "Data Mining for Genomics and Proteomics" (2010) for background material. Key questions: (1) What are the pros and cons of various model development methods? (2) How many samples are needed in the model development phase?
