[…] adjacent tissues, we applied mrmr method, which ranks the features according to their relevance to the target phenotypes minus the redundancy between the features []. in our study, we used r package mrmre to implement mrmr []. in mrmre, both relevance and redundancy are quantified by mutual information (mi):, where x and y are two variables to be tested, p(x) and p(y) are the marginal […]

[…] a supervised feature selection algorithm followed by a stepwise cox regression approach on dataset1: first, we employed the minimum-redundancy maximum-relevance (mrmr) algorithm implemented in the ‘mrmre’ r package () on all radiomic features with respect to os to select a non-redundant, highly informative ranked set of complementary features. next, we trained cox models incrementally, adding […]

[…] ‘relevance’ to target (phenotype) and ‘redundancy’ between features . both relevance and redundancy are quantified using mutual information (mi). in this study, mrmr was realized using a r package ‘mrmre’ , in which mi is estimated as,(1)where i and ρ represent the mi and the correlation coefficient between variables x and y, respectively., let y and x = {x1, …, xn} be the input variable […]
