PMCID: 5399403
PMID: 28427468
DOI: 10.1186/s13326-017-0125-1

[…] this may motivate the investigation of other subgraph mining methods that may be more informative on the weights of substructures in the classification. one may consider techniques such as gboost [] that progressively collects informative patterns, or gspan [] that enumerates frequent subgraph used as features for classification., rf algorithm performs correctly (f-m =0.73) […]

PMCID: 5287119
PMID: 28154506
DOI: 10.5808/GI.2016.14.4.160

[…] equal to the maximum likelihood estimators for a log-linear model, and it is used to select pairs of snps with a specified threshold. there is an updated method, graphical processing units boost (gboost), which is a boost method implemented for a graphical processing units framework for enabling parallel computing to achieve massive assignment in a fast manner []. gboost achieves a 40-fold […]

PMID: 27618895
DOI: 10.3390/ijms17091417

[…] did not take gene-gene interactions into account, and the emergence of transmissible drug resistance is connected with multiple genetic mutations. in this study we use the bioinformatics software gboost (the hong kong university, clear water bay, kowloon, hong kong, china) to calculate the interactions of single nucleotide polymorphism (snp) pairs and identify gene pairs associated with drug […]

PMCID: 4330252
PMID: 25705156
DOI: 10.5808/GI.2014.12.4.181

[…] focused on dm, ht, and cad (myocardial infarction and cad) and considered people who did not have any disease as the controls ()., we applied gpu-based boolean operation-based screening and testing (gboost) to analyze epistatic interaction effects from the genomewide snp data []. stage i: screening-in the screening stage, boost evaluated all pairwise interactions using the kirkwood superposition […]

[…] such modules []. strategies based on high performance computing were also designed and extended to be used with graphics processing units (gpu), yielding such highly efficient method as boost and gboost [, ]., with these understandings, we proposed in this paper the first study of epistatic interactions in mgwa studies. more specifically, we designed a method called metaboost to detect […]
