The experiment selection algorithm is effective on gene groups based on KEGG.
ROC curve analysis for genes in the “Alpha linolenic acid metabolic pathway” (KEGG ID: ath00592) from the KEGG Pathway Database. (A) Average ROC curves from the ten-fold cross-validation for the GBA-based classifier for predicting genes belonging to “Alpha-linolenic acid metabolism” pathway. (B) Average (1-AUC) scores from 10-fold cross validation. The p-value for the t-test between the ten (1-AUC) values from the ten-fold cross-validation obtained using the selected experiments and those obtained using all experiments is also reported in blue.
