kbmtl citations


Drug Response Prediction as a Link Prediction Problem

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5220354
PMID: 28067293
DOI: 10.1038/srep40321

[…] In order to better understand the accuracy of our method, we compare it against the top performing approach in the DREAM Drug Sensitivity Prediction Challenge, Gonen and Margolin’s kernelized Bayesian multitask learning (KBMTL) algorithm. This approach attempts to predict the susceptibility of each cell line to a panel of drugs simultaneously, which is comparable with our method […]


Multitask learning improves prediction of cancer drug sensitivity

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4994023
PMID: 27550087
DOI: 10.1038/srep31619

[…] We implemented the kbmtl R package provided in the paper by Gonen et al. on the CCLE, NCI60 and CTD2 dataset. Following instructions in the paper, we applied a Gaussian on the training set with all the default parameter […]


A Copula Based Approach for Design of Multivariate Random Forests for Drug Sensitivity Prediction

PLoS One
PMCID: 4684346
PMID: 26658256
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0144490

[…] on is shown for GDSC dataset in Table A in .For performance comparison purposes, we report results of Copula based MRF (CMRF) along with univariate RF (denoted by RF), Covariance based MRF (VMRF) and Kernelized Bayesian Multitask Learning (KBMTL) [] approaches. KBMTL is Bayesian formulation that combines kernel based non-linear dimensionality reduction and regression in a multitask learning framew […]
