Variable Selection in Finite Mixture of AFT Regression and FMR Models






The package obtains parameter estimation, i.e., maximum likelihood estimators (MLE), via the Expectation-Maximization (EM) algorithm for the Finite Mixture of Regression (FMR) models with Normal distribution, and MLE for the Finite Mixture of Accelerated Failure Time Regression (FMAFTR) subject to right censoring with Log-Normal and Weibull distributions via the EM algorithm and the Newton-Raphson algorithm (for Weibull distribution). More importantly, the package obtains the maximum penalized likelihood (MPLE) for both FMR and FMAFTR models (collectively called FMRs). A component-wise tuning parameter selection based on a component-wise BIC is implemented in the package. Furthermore, this package provides Ridge Regression and Elastic Net.

You need a conda-compatible package manager (currently either micromamba, mamba, or conda) and the Bioconda channel already activated (see set-up-channels).

While any of above package managers is fine, it is currently recommended to use either micromamba or mamba (see here for installation instructions). We will show all commands using mamba below, but the arguments are the same for the two others.

Given that you already have a conda environment in which you want to have this package, install with:

   mamba install bioconductor-fmrs

and update with::

   mamba update bioconductor-fmrs

To create a new environment, run:

mamba create --name myenvname bioconductor-fmrs

with myenvname being a reasonable name for the environment (see e.g. the mamba docs for details and further options).

Alternatively, use the docker container:

   docker pull<tag>

(see `bioconductor-fmrs/tags`_ for valid values for ``<tag>``)
