Table 3 Multifactor Dimensionality Reduction Models for 8q24 rs16901979 Sequence Variants

From: 8q24 sequence variants in relation to prostate cancer risk among men of African descent: A case-control study

Best Model Cross Validation Consistency Average Testing Accuracy Permutation Testing p-value
rs16901979 10/10 0.557 0.038
  1. Multifactor dimensionality reduction (MDR) model is considered statistically significant (p < 0.05) if the average testing accuracy is greater than testing accuracy cut-off based on 10,000-fold permutations of all possible single factor loci.
