Resumen de Tesis: Model for explicit biological knowledge integration in DNA microarray gene expression classification

Daniel González Peña


This thesis presents a model for explicit biological knowledge integration in classification techniques applied to DNA microarray gene expression data, in the context of cancer diagnosis. The developed system was validated exhaustively, concluding that the biological knowledge integration leads to a significative coherence improvement on informative gene selection, while keeping the classical models accuracy and also improving the robustness when combining experimental data coming from different studies.
