Network-based Classification and Clustering Methods for Genomic Data

Biological observations reveal that genes in a network tend to function together in biological processes. With the availability of gene pathways or networks and the accumulating knowledge on genes with variants that predispose to diseases (disease genes), these researchers are using network-based regression, classification, and clustering methods for high-dimensional microarray gene expression data, SNP data, and other high-throughput genomic data. In addition to theoretical investigations, they are conducting simulation studies and real data applications to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed methods for practical sample sizes and set-ups.
