pathClass: Classification using biological pathways as prior knowledge

pathClass is a collection of classification methods that use information about feature connectivity in a biological network as an additional source of information. This additional knowledge is incorporated into the classification a priori. Several authors have shown that this approach significantly increases the classification performance.
