On the limits of data-driven cancer prognosis prediction


We show that a widely used training-data classification rule fails to provide reliable cancer prognosis prediction even in a very simple case with binary data from a relatively small number of genes. We also show that this limitation can be overcome by optimally integrating prior biological knowledge into a model-based framework with a sufficient amount of… (More)
