Table 1 Comparison of classification accuracies for a two-gene classifier, TSP, and a three-gene classifier, TST, for ten cancer studies.

From: The ordering of expression among a few genes can provide simple cancer biomarkers and signal BRCA1 mutations

  1. The classification rates are estimated by leave-one-out cross validation. In both cases, the genes are restricted to a subset of differentially expressed genes based on a Wilcoxon rank test; the details appear in §2.3 and §3.1. The subsets are selected to ensure that the number of possible two-gene and three-gene classifiers are the same.
