MAQC Participants Struggle with ‘Robust’ Classifiers | GenomeWeb

During MAQC’s seventh face-to-face project meeting, consortium participants presented some initial results of the second phase of the project, called MAQC-II. While MAQC I evaluated the reproducibility of microarray experiments across different labs and platforms, MAQC-II is focusing on the prediction of biological outcomes based on microarray data.

Four participating groups are independently analyzing several clinical and toxicogenomics data sets with the goal of identifying “best practices” for developing classifiers that are reliable enough to use in a clinical setting.
