UL.mod.cv: A glmnet-object trained to perform gestational age...

Description Details Source References Examples


The glmnet-object consists of a Lasso-regression model 'trained' to perform gestational age predictions. It is called by the wrapper function predictGA, which is more user-friendly.


The trained Lasso-model contains cross-validated estimates of the penalty term lambda that regulates the number of CpG sites needed for gestational age prediction. It is called by the glmnet-inherited predict function with a matrix of CpG betas (with values between 0 and 1) that conforms to the Illumina HumanMethylation450 platform. The gestational age estimates used to train the regression model were taken from the MoBa cohort and are based on ultrasound.
