New Data Mining Book

The second edition of "Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques" by Witten and Frank is now available. More information can be found here. The Amazon.com link is here.

This book provides a very nice introduction to many different data mining methods. In addition, it is based on the Weka data mining software package that is freely available from here along with Java source files. Weka is very comprehensive and provides a wide variety if different machine learning algorithms along with data manipulation tools all in an easy to us software package with a nice GUI. Many of these tools are useful for detecting and characterizing gene-gene and gene-environment interactions.

We have included the kernel of our Multifactor Dimensionality Reduction (MDR) algorithm in a special version of Weka for Computational Genetics (Weka-CG). Weka-CG can be found here.
