Introduction to Feature selection for bioinformaticians using R, correlation matrix filters, PCA & backward selection

Bioinformatics is becoming more and more a Data Mining field. Every passing day, Genomics and Proteomics yield bucketloads of multivariate data (genes, proteins, DNA, identified peptides, structures), and every one of these biological data units are described by a number of features: length, physicochemical properties, scores, etc. Careful consideration of which features to select when trying...

Latent Gaussian Models and INLA

If you read my post about Fast Bayesian Inference with INLA you might wonder which models are included within the class of latent Gaussian models (LGM), and can therefore be fitted with INLA. Next I will give a general definition about LGM and later I will describe three completely different examples that belong to this

Creating Colorblind-Friendly Figures

Color is often used to display an extra dimension in plots of scientific data. Unfortunately, everyone does not decode color in exactly the same way. This is especially true for those with color vision deficiency, which affects up to 8 percent of the population in its 2 most common forms. As …

A Bayesian Model for a Function Increasing by Chi-Squared Jumps (in Stan)

(This article was first published on David Chudzicki's Blog, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers) This post will describe a way I came up with of fitting a function that’s constrained to be increasing, using Stan. If you want practical help, standard statistical approaches, or expert research, this isn’t the place for you (look up “isotonic regression” or “Bayesian isotonic...

By
shinyGL

The rgl package has been used to produce rich, interactive 3D graphics within R using the OpenGL framework for some time. The rgl authors also added the ability to export to WebGL, allowing R authors to produce interactive 3D graphics that were accessible from within any modern web browser. This functionality can now be leveraged

Remembering the Gist, But Not the Details:  One-Dimensional Representation of Consumer Ratings

In survey research, it makes a difference how the question is asked.  "How would you rate the service you received at that restaurant?" is not the same as "Did you have to wait to be seated, to order your meal, to be served your food, or to pay yo...
