Implementing Machine Learning Algorithms for Classification and Feature Selection in Mothur

  • Using any open source tools i.e. R, Octave, scikit-learn, libsvm, shogun ML toolbox etc and scripting, run any one of the feature selection algorithms on the data provided
  • Write a prototype implementation of svm or enet and try it on the data provided

The output should be in the following format. The rank is a relative term, not an absolute value. It denotes the relative importance between the features.
