Abstract: aBioMarVsuit can be used to discover predictive gene signature for predicting survival and dividing patients into low or high risk groups. Classifiers are constructed as linear combination of important genes and prognostic factors and treatment effects can be incorporated, if necessary. Several classifiers are implemented along with the validation procedures: majority votes technique and LASSO and Elastic net based classifiers and as function of scores of first PCA or PLS methods. Gene expression matrix is reduced using the dimension reduction methods PLS and PCA, when only scores of the first component are used in the classifier. Sensitivity analysis on the cutoff values used for the classifiers which are based on PCA and PLS can be carried out. Large scale cross validation can be performed in order to investigate the mostly selected genes during the evaluation process and therefore distributions for hazard ratios (HR) for the low risk group can be approximated both on test and training data. The inference is based on resampling methods, permutations in which null distribution of the estimated HR is approximated. Package depends on several other packages mainly, superpc and glmnet.
