PMID: 29412457
DOI: 10.1002/path.5051

[…] cms class (i.e. a sample will have a score for cms1, cms2, cms3, and cms4) before a final classification is made. using these individual cms scores, we created a cms ratio based on the change in rf score, from ct and if regions, for each patient‐matched sample (figure a). we demonstrated an increase in the relative classification score for cms1 and 4 subtypes (the stromal subtypes) […]

[…] learning instead of the classical linear regression approach of the fourth sf (x-score which has the best test set performance out of 16 classical sfs). we have found that random forest (rf)-based rf-score-v3 outperforms x-score even when 68% of the most similar proteins are removed from the training set. in addition, unlike x-score, rf-score-v3 is able to keep learning with an increasing […]

[…] therefore, pi3kα appears to be an ideal target for drug development. in this study, we utilized free and open-source protein-ligand docking software idock,, binding affinity prediction software rf-score-v3, and molecular visualization tool iview to screen 3167 fda-approved small molecules to identify putative pi3kα inhibitors. among them, econazole nitrate, an antifungal agent, exhibited […]

[…] be most likely closest to the crystal pose ()., following docking, the compounds were sorted in ascending order of their predicted binding free energy. meanwhile, the more accurate scoring function rf-score v3 was executed to rescore all the compounds (), providing an additional and more reliable estimation of intermolecular binding strength, given the assumption that the compounds […]

DOI: 10.1128/mBio.01050-17

[…] mutations with a frequency of <0.01% in the transfection library were filtered out, and possible g-a hypermutations were removed (). lethal mutations were defined as the mutations with log10(rf score) of less than −0.95. that value represented the distribution peak of nonsense mutations, while only 2.5% of synonymous mutations fell below this cutoff., a total of 6,097 prealigned hiv-1 […]
