Bayesian Variable Selection for Multiclass Classification using Bootstrap Prior Technique
In this paper, the one-way ANOVA model and its application in Bayesian multi-class variable selection is considered. A full Bayesian bootstrap prior ANOVA test function is developed within the framework of parametric empirical Bayes. The test function developed was later used for variable screening in multiclass classification scenario. Performance comparison between the proposed method and existing classical ANOVA method was achieved using simulated and real life gene expression datasets. Analysis results revealed lower false positive rate and higher sensitivity for the proposed method.
