*The goal of genome-wide prediction GWP is to predict phenotypes based on marker genotypes, often obtained through single nucleotide polymorphism SNP chips. The major problem with GWP is high-dimensional data from many thousands of SNPs scored on several thousands of individuals. A large number of methods have been developed for GWP, which are mostly parametric methods that assume statistical linearity and only additive genetic effects.*

## Genome-wide prediction using Bayesian additive regression trees

Bayesian Classification and Regression Tree. Classification and Regression Tree s. Wiley, Assume each end or terminal node has a homogeneous distribution. However, the actual tree generation methods were still very ad-hoc. After this work was published a large number of different ad-hoc methods appear, as well as attempts to combine them to produce better inferential strategies. Methods are largely deterministic in nature and produce one tree per method.

Classification and regression tree CART models are tree-based exploratory data analysis methods which have been shown to be very useful in identifying and estimating complex hierarchical relationships in ecological and medical contexts. In this paper, a Bayesian CART model is described and applied to the problem of modelling the cryptosporidiosis infection in Queensland, Australia. Overall, the analyses indicated that the nature and magnitude of the effect estimates were similar for the two methods in this study, but the CART model more easily accommodated higher order interaction effects. A Bayesian CART model for identification and estimation of the spatial distribution of disease risk is useful in monitoring and assessment of infectious diseases prevention and control.

Decision tree learning is one of the predictive modelling approaches used in statistics , data mining and machine learning. It uses a decision tree as a predictive model to go from observations about an item represented in the branches to conclusions about the item's target value represented in the leaves. Tree models where the target variable can take a discrete set of values are called classification trees ; in these tree structures, leaves represent class labels and branches represent conjunctions of features that lead to those class labels. Decision trees where the target variable can take continuous values typically real numbers are called regression trees. Decision trees are among the most popular machine learning algorithms given their intelligibility and simplicity.

Background : Audience segmentation strategies are of increasing interest to public health professionals who wish to identify easily defined, mutually exclusive population subgroups whose members share similar characteristics that help determine participation in a health-related behavior as a basis for targeted interventions. However, it is not commonly used in public health. This is a preview of subscription content, access via your institution. Pacific Grove, CA: Wadsworth, Google Scholar.

It can be considered a Bayesian version of machine learning tree ensemble methods where the individual trees are the base learners. However for datasets where the number of variables p is large the algorithm can become inefficient and computationally expensive. Another method which is popular for high dimensional data is random forests, a machine learning algorithm which grows trees using a greedy search for the best split points. However its default implementation does not produce probabilistic estimates or predictions. We showcase this method using simulated data and data from two real proteomic experiments, one to distinguish between patients with cardiovascular disease and controls and another to classify aggressive from non-aggressive prostate cancer.

Tree-based regression and classification ensembles form a standard part of the data-science toolkit. Many commonly used methods take an algorithmic view, proposing greedy methods for constructing decision trees; examples include the classification and regression trees algorithm, boosted decision trees, and random forests. Recent history has seen a surge of interest in Bayesian techniques for constructing decision tree ensembles, with these methods frequently outperforming their algorithmic counterparts.
