    Whether a seed coat of a soybean ( Glycine max L. Mer.) seed is permeable or non-permeable is governed by a number of quantitative trait loci further influenced by environmental factors. In soybean seeds, water loss is controlled by a thin, inconspicuous outer cuticle. When intact, the outer...

  • Bayesian variable selection for disease classification using gene expression data. Yang Ai-Jun; Song Xin-Yuan // Bioinformatics;Jan2010, Vol. 26 Issue 2, p215 

    Motivation: An important application of gene expression microarray data is the classification of samples into categories. Accurate classification depends upon the method used to identify the most relevant genes. Owing to the large number of genes and relatively small sample size, the selection...

    Motivation: There is great interest in pathway-based methods for genomics data analysis in the research community. Although machine learning methods, such as random forests, have been developed to correlate survival outcomes with a set of genes, no study has assessed the abilities of these...

    Motivation: Microarray data must be background corrected to remove the effects of non-specific binding or spatial heterogeneity across the array, but this practice typically causes other problems such as negative corrected intensities and high variability of low intensity log-ratios. Different...
