fuzzyforest is an extension of random forests designed to yield less biased variable importance rankings when features are correlated with one another. The algorithm requires that features be partitioned into seperate groups or modules such that the correlation within groups are large and the correlation between groups is small.
fuzzyforest allows for easy integration the package
To enable use of the full functionality of
WGCNA must be installed. However,
WGCNA requires the installation of a few packages form bioConductor. To install
WGCNA, type the following lines into the console:
setRepositories(ind=1:2) install.packages("WGCNA") source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R") biocLite("AnnotationDbi", type="source") biocLite("GO.db")
If further issues with the installation of
WGCNA arise see the
