Dear list members. I am trying to make a sensitivity analysis (as derived by Zurada 1994, Engelbrecht 1995) of input parameters (gene expression data) when applying a neural network to classify different cancer subtypes. Since I am no expert in the field, (rather a newbie), I wonder if there exists an implementation in R that can be used to measure the relative importance of the input variables for the neural network. I read that the sensitivity matrix is the Jacobian matrix of the output parameters over the input parameters. I think that somehow I can grasp the concept, I just don?t know how to implement it in R. Any help, or guidelines would be greatly appreciated. Best regards Marcus

First suggestion is to check out the machine learning view on cran: http://cran.r-project.org/web/views/MachineLearning.html You'll see where to get a neural network implementation there from there. Are you can calculate a jacobian matrix? Try searching the R-help list in gmane/nabble: http://www.nabble.com/forum/Search.jtp?forum=13819&local=y&query=jacob ian You might also get more help from the general R-help mailing list ... even though your specific application is related to biological data, I think your questions might be better addressed there since there somehow more general in nature. -steve -- Steve Lianoglou Graduate Student: Computational Systems Biology | Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center | Weill Medical College of Cornell University Contact Info: http://cbio.mskcc.org/~lianos/contact
