# ClassifyR: Performance evaluation for multi-view data sets and seamless integration with MultiAssayExperiment and Bioconductor
<img src="man/figures/ClassifyRsticker.png" align="right" width=250 style="margin-left: 10px;">
ClassifyR's performance evaluation focuses on model stability and interpretability. Based on repeated cross-validation, it is possible to evaluate feature selection stability and also per-sample prediction accuracy. Also, multiple omics data assays on the same samples are becoming more popular and ClassifyR supports a range of multi-view methods to evaluate which data view is the most predictive and combine data views to evaluate if multiple views provide superior predictive performance to a single data view.
The recommended method of installing ClassifyR is by using Bioconductor's BiocManager installer:
install("ClassifyR", dependencies = TRUE)
The above code will install all packages that provide feature selection or model-building functionality. If only one or two methods are desired then the dependencies option could be omitted and those packages providing functionality installed manually.
Please visit [the ClassifyR website](https://sydneybiox.github.io/ClassifyR/) to view the main vignette as well as articles that provide more in-depth explanations for various aspects of the package. Details of performance evaluation, multi-view methods and contributing a wrapper for a new algorithm to the package are provided.
