Thesis topic

Stable feature selection in multi-locus Genome Wide Association Studies.

Short abstract

Our main goal is to provide a stable framework in Genome Wide Association Studies using Machine Learning, essentially feature selection models to deal with high-dimensional data. Many challenges lay ahead such as: genetic population stratification, linkage disequilibrium patterns clustering, the stability of the selection and the computational complexity. We aim to solve these issues by developing efficient algorithms applied to real data in case control studies such as  breast cancer disease.
