New evaluation measures for multifactor dimensionality reduction (MDR)
There are two recent papers that propose alternatives to accuracy as a measure of the quality of MDR models. See:
Namkung J, Kim K, Yi S, Chung W, Kwon MS, Park T. New evaluation measures for multifactor dimensionality reduction classifiers in gene-gene interaction analysis. Bioinformatics. 2009 Feb 1;25(3):338-45. [PubMed]
Bush WS, Edwards TL, Dudek SM, McKinney BA, Ritchie MD. Alternative contingency table measures improve the power and detection of multifactor dimensionality reduction. BMC Bioinformatics. 2008 May 16;9:238. [PubMed]
Which of these would users like to see added to our open-source MDR software package? Let me know.
