Random Forest as a Tumour Genetic Marker Extractor

Finding tumour genetic markers is essential to biomedicine due to their relevance for cancer detection and therapy development. In this paper, we explore a recently released dataset of chromosome rearrangements in 2,586 cancer patients, where different sorts of alterations have been detected. Using a Random Forest classifier, we evaluate the relevance of several features (some directly available in the original data, some engineered by us) related to chromosome rearrangements. This evaluation results in a set of potential tumour genetic markers, some of which are validated in the bibliography, while others are potentially novel.
