Hierarchical Multilabel Classification Trees for Gene Function Prediction

Hierarchical Multilabel Classification Trees for Gene Function Prediction

This video was recorded at Workshop on Probabilistic Modeling and Machine Learning in Structural and Systems Biology (PMSB), Tuusula 2006. Prediction of gene function is a so-called hierarchical multilabel classification (HMC) task: a single instance can be labelled with multiple classes rather than just one (i.e., a gene can have multiple functions), and these classes are organized in a hierarchy. Many machine learning methods focus on learning predictive models with a single target variable. One can then learn to predict all classes separately and combine the predictions afterwards.
