    Abstract: Various gene signatures of chemosensitivity in breast cancer have been identified. When used to build predictors of have chemosensitivity, many of them have their prediction accuracy around 80%. Identifying gene signatures to build high accuracy such predictors is a prerequisite for their clinical tests and applications. To elucidate the importance... Show More
