A Neural Network Based Method with Transfer Learning for Genetic Data Analysis

20 Jun 2022  ·  Jinghang Lin, Shan Zhang, Qing Lu ·

Transfer learning has emerged as a powerful technique in many application problems, such as computer vision and natural language processing. However, this technique is largely ignored in application to genetic data analysis. In this paper, we combine transfer learning technique with a neural network based method(expectile neural networks). With transfer learning, instead of starting the learning process from scratch, we start from one task that have been learned when solving a different task. We leverage previous learnings and avoid starting from scratch to improve the model performance by passing information gained in different but related task. To demonstrate the performance, we run two real data sets. By using transfer learning algorithm, the performance of expectile neural networks is improved compared to expectile neural network without using transfer learning technique.
