Variable Selection for Structured Large Datasets

Over the last century, new technologies have brought about the study of large datasets in multiple disciplines, both research-based and in industry. In this research we consider large datasets that are common in biomedical research, typically these datasets contain observations of: genes (genomics), mRNA (transcriptomics), proteins (proteomics) and meabolites (metabolomics) and collectively are known as ‘Omics’ datasets. Two parallel avenues of the research are: the development of feature selection methods for large structured data; and the application of these methods for Omics datasets. These methods will be based on variable selection techniques developed in both frequentist and Bayesian paradigms.
