An algorithm for identifying candidate driver combinations in cancer. CRSO is based on a theoretical model of cancer in which a cancer rule is defined to be a collection of two or more events (i.e., alterations) that are minimally sufficient to cause cancer. A cancer rule set is a set of cancer rules that collectively are assumed to account for all of ways to cause cancer in the population. In CRSO every event is designated explicitly as a passenger or driver within each patient. Each event is associated with a patientspecific, eventspecific passenger penalty, reflecting how unlikely the event would have happened by chance, i.e., as a passenger. CRSO evaluates each rule set by assigning all samples to a rule in the rule set, or to the null rule, and then calculating the total statistical penalty from all unassigned event. CRSO uses a three phase procedure find the best rule set of fixed size K for a range of Ks. A core rule set is then identified from among the best rule sets of size K as the rule set that best balances rule set size and statistical penalty. Users should consult the 'crso' vignette for an example walk through of a full CRSO run. The full description, of the CRSO algorithm is presented in: Klein MI, Cannataro V, Townsend J, Stern DF and Zhao H. "Identifying combinations of cancer driver in individual patients."
