snpRF: Random Forest for SNPs to Prevent X-chromosome SNP Importance Bias

A modification of Breiman and Cutler's classification random forests modified for SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) data (based on randomForest v4.6-7) to prevent X-chromosome SNP variable importance bias compared to autosomal SNPs by simulating the process of X chromosome inactivation. Classification is based on a forest of trees using random subsets of SNPs and other variables as inputs.
