These functions are used to apply the generic train-and-test mechanism to a classifier that combines principal component analysis (PCA) with logistic regression (LR).

The RF classifier is similar in spirit to the "supervised principal
components" method implemented in the
superpc package. We
start by performing univariate two-sample t-tests to identify features
that are differentially expressed between two groups of training
samples. We then set a cutoff to select features using a bound
alpha) on the false discovery rate (FDR). If the number of
selected features is smaller than a prespecified goal
minNgenes), then we increase the FDR until we get the desired
number of features. Next, we perform PCA on the selected features
from the trqining data. we retain enough principal components (PCs)
to explain a prespecified fraction of the variance (
We then fit a logistic regression model using these PCs to predict the
binary class of the training data. In order to use this model to make
binary predictions, you must specify a
prior probability that a
sample belongs to the first of the two groups (where the ordering is
determined by the levels of the classification factor,
