Many clinical studies have revealed the high biological similarities existing among different skin pathological states. These similarities create difficulties in the efficient diagnosis of skin cancer, and encourage to study and design new intelligent clinical decision support systems. In this sense, gene expression analysis can help find differentially expressed genes (DEGs) simultaneously discerning multiple skin pathological states in a single test. The integration of multiple heterogeneous… Expand
Non-small-cell lung cancer classification via RNA-Seq and histology imaging probability fusion
A classification model using a late fusion methodology can considerably help clinicians in the diagnosis between the aforementioned lung cancer cancer subtypes over using each source of information separately, and can be applied to any cancer type or disease with heterogeneous sources of information.

Multiclass classification for skin cancer profiling based on the integration of heterogeneous gene expression series
A novel methodological approach involving the integration of several heterogeneous skin cancer series, and a later multiclass classifier design, is proposed to provide the clinicians with an intelligent diagnosis support tool based on the use of a robust set of selected biomarkers, which simultaneously distinguishes among different cancer-related skin states.

Integrative multi-platform meta-analysis of gene expression profiles in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma patients for identifying novel diagnostic biomarkers
The proposed integrative meta-analysis has revealed novel DEGs that may play an important role in PDAC and could be potential biomarkers for diagnosing the disease. Expand
Leukemia multiclass assessment and classification from Microarray and RNA-seq technologies integration at gene expression level
This work presents an integration of multiple Microarray and RNA-seq platforms, which has led to the design of a multiclass study by collecting samples from the main four types of leukemia, and an innovative parameter referred to as coverage is presented here. Expand

EGR3 gene was found to be the most differentially expressed gene in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, which had the potential to function as the candidate genes and help in the diagnosis and prognostic treatments of CSCC. Expand
Unifying cancer and normal RNA sequencing data from different sources
A pipeline is developed that processes and unifies RNA-seq data from different studies, which includes uniform realignment, gene expression quantification, and batch effect removal, finding that uniform alignment and quantification is not sufficient when combining RNA- sequencing data fromDifferent sources and that the removal of other batch effects is essential to facilitate data comparison.

Statistical Analysis on Microarray Data: Selection of Gene Prognosis Signatures
This chapter focuses on the classification and the prediction of a sample given some carefully chosen gene expression profiles, and reviews some state-of-the-art machine learning approaches to perform gene selection: recursive feature elimination, nearest-shrunken centroids and random forests.

Integration of RNA-Seq data with heterogeneous microarray data for breast cancer profiling
A new model to find the gene signature of breast cancer cell lines through the integration of heterogeneous data from different breast cancer datasets, obtained from microarray and RNA-Seq technologies is proposed and its performance was validated using previously unseen samples. Expand
Gene expression patterns of normal human skin, actinic keratosis, and squamous cell carcinoma: a spectrum of disease progression.
The finding of similar differentially expressed genes in AK and SCC confirms that AK is a precursor lesion of SCC and indicates that they are closely related genetically. Expand
The impact of genomics in understanding human melanoma progression and metastasis.
Several gene expression platforms have provided insight into the gene expression patterns in melanoma and will provide the foundations for the future development of prognostic markers and improved targeted therapies for patients with melanoma. Expand
Iterative ensemble feature selection for multiclass classification of imbalanced microarray data
This study proposes a novel iterative ensemble feature selection (IEFS) framework for multiclass classification of imbalanced microarray data and shows that the IEFS framework provides superior or comparable performance to the other methods in terms of both classification accuracy and area under receiver operating characteristic curve.
