Fuzzy set based approach to generalized multi-factor dimensionality reduction analysis of gene-gene interactions (FGMDR)


This method is fuzzy generalized multifactor dimensionality reduction (FGMDR) method as an extension of GMDR method to detect gene-gene interactions associated with disease using fuzzy set theory. Details of Fuzzy MDR is explained in the following paper. More details of FGMDR will be updated as soon as published.

#glm fitting for residual calculation with equation as class~covariates form
fit_model <- glm(temp_data[,n]~temp_data[,n-1], data= temp_data, family = binomial(link = "logit")) 

#standard residuals for FGMDR
temp_data$res<-residuals(fit_model, type="response")

#data transformation, SNPs(9:24) and residuals(8)
data_FGMDR <- temp_data[,c(9:24, 8)]

#run FGMDR with 2-locus, 0.5 threshold and 10-fold cross validation
res_2_2<-FGMDR(data_FGMDR, 2, 0.5, 10)
