High-dimensional Bulk RNA sequencing (RNAseq) datasets pose a considerable challenge in identifying biologically relevant features for downstream analyses and data mining efforts. Introducing GeneSelectR, an open-source R package that innovatively combines ML and bioinformatic data mining approaches for enhanced feature selection.

In this video, you will also see how you can use GeneSelectR to select features from a normalized RNAseq dataset with a variety of ML methods and user-defined parameters. If you are a bioinformatician who performs bulk RNAseq analysis but struggles with selecting a gene list for downstream analyses, then this talk is for you!
