Details

Multiclass prediction using a hybrid combination of spike and slab linear regression and random forest multiclass prediction (Ishwaran and Rao, 2009). A pseudo y-vector of response values is calculated using each of the top n.prcmp principal components of the x-gene expression matrix. The generalized elastic net obtained from using spike and slab regression is used to select genes; one regression fit is used for each of the pseduo y-response vectors. The final combined set of genes are passed to random forests and used to construct a multiclass forest predictor. This procedure is repeated n.rep times with each Monte Carlo replicate based on balanced cross-validation with 2/3rds of the data used for training and 1/3rd used for testing.

—> Miscellanea:

Test set error is only computed when n.rep is larger than 1. If n.rep=1 the full data is used without any cross-validation.

Value

Invisibly, the final set of selected genes as well as the complete set of genes selected over the n.rep Monte Carlo replications. The random forest classifier is also returned.

The misclassification error rate, error rate for each class, and other summary information are output to the terminal.
