In the thesis the full proton-proton collision data recorded by the CMS detector in 2012 at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV is analyzed. Two novel analyses are presented targeting the WH and the tHq production channels. Both searches focus on the Higgs boson decay into bottom quark pairs, that has not yet been observed.
