A reliable and precise classification of diseases is essential for successful diagnosis and treatment. Using mass spectrometry from clinical specimens, scientists may find the protein variations among disease and use this information to improve diagnosis. In this paper, we propose a novel procedure to classify disease status based on the protein data from mass spectrometry. Our new tree-based algorithm consists of three steps: projection, selection and classification tree. The projection step… CONTINUE READING
