Description

This function predicts the risk scores for patient samples in the test set.

Usage

1
predictBicSurv(newdata.vec, postprob.vec, mle.mat)

Arguments

newdata.vec

A vector consisting of the data from a test sample.

postprob.vec

A vector consisting of the posterior probability of each BMA selected model.

mle.mat

A matrix with one row per model and one column per variable giving the maximum likelihood estimate of each coefficient for each bic.surv selected model.

Details

The function begins by computing the risk score of each model k in the selected set of models M. The risk score for a model k = sum (coefficient in model k * corresponding expression level in newdata.vec). The function then predicts a patient risk score by summing the product of the posterior probability of model k and the risk score of model k over all models in M. In other words, predicted patient risk score = sum (postprob model k * risk score model k). This function is called by iterateBMAsurv.train.predict.assess.

Value

A real number representing the predicted risk score of a given patient sample.
