• Identifying Drug Resistant miRNAs Using Entropy Based Ranking

    6 days ago - By IEEE/ACM

    MicroRNAs play an important role in controlling drug sensitivity and resistance in cancer. Identification of responsible miRNAs for drug resistance can enhance the effectiveness of treatment. A new set theoretic entropy measure is defined to determine the relevance and level of confidence of miRNAs in deciding their drug resistant nature. Here, a pattern is represented by a pair of values. One of them implies the degree of its belongingness to a class and the other represents the actual class of origin. A measure, called granular probability, is defined that determines the confidence level...
