netClass: netClass: An R Package for Network-Based Biomarker Discovery

netClass is an R package for network-based feature (gene) selection for biomarkers discovery via integrating biological information. This package adapts the following 5 algorithms for classifying and predicting gene expression data using prior knowledge: 1) average gene expression of pathway (aep); 2) pathway activities classification (PAC); 3) Hub network Classification (hubc); 4) filter via top ranked genes (FrSVM); 5) network smoothed t-statistic (stSVM).
