Bayes and majority voting consensus (for MATLAB)

This file contains the MATLAB code and data to reproduce the consensus (high level data fusion) described in the following manuscript: C. Valsecchi, F. Grisoni, V. Consonni, D. Ballabio (2020), Consensus approaches versus individual classification QSARs: comparison on a large-scale case study, Journal of Chemical Information and Modelling, 60, 1215-1223 [link]. The present study was based on the outcome of a large collaborative project (Collaborative Modeling Project of Androgen Receptor Activity, CoMPARA), which produced three data sets containing experimental values on Androgen Receptor (AR) modulation and corresponding QSAR predictions, namely: (i) binding to AR (34 QSAR models), (ii) AR antagonism (22 QSAR models), and (iii) AR agonism (21 QSAR models). The aim of the study was the systematic investigation of the advantages of consensus strategies compared to single QSAR models. To this end, approaches with varying level of complexity (majority voting and Bayesian methods, in both protective and non-protective versions) were considered.
