BioMM: Biological-informed Multi-stage Machine learning framework for phenotype prediction using omics data

Bioconductor version: 3.17

The identification of reproducible biological patterns from high-dimensional omics data is a key factor in understanding the biology of complex disease or traits. Incorporating prior biological knowledge into machine learning is an important step in advancing such research. We have proposed a biologically informed multi-stage machine learing framework termed BioMM specifically for phenotype prediction based on omics-scale data where we can evaluate different machine learning models with prior biological meta information.
