• Unified Methods for Feature Selection in Large-Scale Genomic Studies with Censored Survival Outcomes

    26 days ago - By Oxford Journals

    AbstractMotivationOne of the major goals in large-scale genomic studies is to identify genes with a prognostic impact on time-to-event outcomes which provide insight into the disease's process. With rapid developments in high-throughput genomic technologies in the past two decades, the scientific community is able to monitor the expression levels of tens of thousands of genes and proteins resulting in enormous data sets where the number of genomic features is far greater than the number of subjects. Methods based on univariate Cox regression are often used to select genomic features...
