Background: Multifactor dimensionality reduction (MDR) is a nonparametric approach that can be used to detect relevant interactions between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). The aim of this study was to build the best genomic model based on SNP associations and to identify candidate polymorphisms that are the underlying molecular basis of the bipolar disorders. Methods: This study was performed on Whole-Genome Association Study of Bipolar Disorder (dbGaP [database of Genotypes and Phenotypes] study accession number: phs000017.v3.p1) data. After preprocessing of the genotyping data, three classification-based data mining methods (ie, random forest, naïve Bayes, and k-nearest neighbor) were performed. Additionally, as a nonparametric, model-free approach, the MDR method was used to evaluate the SNP profiles. The validity of these methods was evaluated using true classification rate, recall (sensitivity), precision (positive predictive value), and F-measure. Results: Random forests, naïve Bayes, and k-nearest neighbors identified 16, 13, and ten candidate SNPs, respectively. Surprisingly, the top six SNPs were reported by all three methods. Random forests and k-nearest neighbors were more successful than naïve Bayes, with recall values >0.95. On the other hand, MDR generated a model with comparable predictive performance based on five SNPs. Although different SNP profiles were identified in MDR compared to the classification-based models, all models mapped SNPs to the DOCK10 gene. Conclusion: Three classification-based data mining approaches, random forests, naïve Bayes, and k-nearest neighbors, have prioritized similar SNP profiles as predictors of bipolar disorders, in contrast to MDR, which has found different SNPs through analysis of two-way and three-way interactions. The reduced number of associated SNPs discovered by MDR, without loss in the classification performance, would facilitate validation studies and decision support models, and would reduce the cost to develop predictive and diagnostic tests. Nevertheless, we need to emphasize that translation of genomic models to the clinical setting requires models with higher classification performance.

Conditional Random Fields for Land Use/Land Cover Classification and Complex Region Detection
Can, Gulcan; Firat, Orhan; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2012-11-09)
Developing a complex region detection algorithm that is aware of its contextual relations with several classes necessitates statistical frameworks that can encode contextual relations rather than simple rule-based applications or heuristics. In this study, we present a conditional random field (CRF) model that is generated over the results of a robust local discriminative classifier in order to reveal contextual relations of complex objects and land use/land cover (LULC) classes. The proposed CRF model enco...
Convex envelope results and strong formulations for a class of mixed-integer programs
Denizel, M; Erenguc, SS; Sherali, HD (1996-06-01)
In this article we present a novel technique for deriving the convex envelope of certain nonconvex fixed-charge functions of the type that arise in several related applications that have been considered in the literature. One common attribute of these problems is that they involve choosing levels for the undertaking of several activities. Two or more activities share a common resource, and a fixed charge is incurred when any of these activities is undertaken at a positive level. We consider nonconvex progra...
Interacting multiple model probabilistic data association filter using random matrices for extended target tracking
Özpak, Ezgi; Orguner, Umut; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
In this thesis, an Interacting Multiple Model – Probabilistic Data Association (IMM-PDA) filter for tracking extended targets using random matrices is proposed. Unlike the extended target trackers in the literature which use multiple alternative partitionings/clusterings of the set of measurements, the algorithm proposed here considers a single partitioning/clustering of the measurement data which makes it suitable for applications with low computational resources. When the IMM-PDA filter uses clustered mea...
Analysis Window Length Selection For Linear Signal Models
Yazar, Alper; Candan, Çağatay (2015-05-19)
A method is presented for the selection of analysis window length, or the number of input samples, for linear signal modeling without compromising the model assumptions. It is assumed that the signal of interest lies in a known linear space and noisy samples of the signal is provided. The goal is to use as many signal samples as possible to mitigate the effect of noise without violating the assumptions on the model. An application example is provided to illustrate the suggested method.
Numerical implementation of magneto-acousto-electrical tomography (MAET) using a linear phased array transducer
GÖZÜ, Mehmet Soner; ZENGİN, Reyhan; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri (2018-02-01)
In this study, the performance and implementation of magneto-acousto-electrical tomography (MAET) is investigated using a linear phased array (LPA) transducer. The goal of MAET is to image the conductivity distribution in biological bodies. It uses the interaction between ultrasound and a static magnetic field to generate velocity current density distribution inside the body. The resultant voltage due to velocity current density is sensed by surface electrodes attached on the body. In this study, the theory...
