Abstract

Sample classification and class prediction is the aim of many gene expression studies. We present a web-based application, Prophet, which builds prediction rules and allows using them for further sample classification. Prophet automatically chooses the best classifier, along with the optimal selection of genes, using a strategy that renders unbiased cross-validated errors. Prophet is linked to different microarray data analysis modules, and includes a unique feature: the possibility of performing the functional interpretation of the molecular signature found. Availability: Prophet can be found at the URL http://prophet.bioinfo.cipf.es/ or within the GEPAS package at http://www.gepas.org/ Supplementary information: http://gepas.bioinfo.cipf.es/tutorial/prophet.html.
