Regulome Explorer: Random Forest allows the exploration of multivariate associations within a heterogeneous dataset containing clinical, sample, and molecular data for hundreds of patients.  Multivariate associations across molecular and clinical features of these datasets were uncovered using RF-ACE, a novel Random Forest (RF) based feature selection algorithm. RF-ACE assesses statistical significance of each uncovered association with a two-sample t-test, where the null hypothesis is derived empirically via a permutation approach. Thus, each association receives a p-value, permitting direct comparison of statistical strengths between uncovered associations in the network.
