Hi, I want to use the e1071 package to do the following:
I have a peptidomics dataset of 890 peptides. In this cohort, there are normotensive and hypertensive individuals. I want to use support vector machines to identify peptide biomarkers that differentiates between normotensive and hypertensive individuals.
I understand from the other examples that you can get the target variable (for example in the iris dataset, you can get the "species" using svm method), however I am not sure how to identify more than one biomarker based on blood pressure? I will also have a training and testing group with equal amounts of normotensive and hypertensive individuals. Therefore, I want to identify peptide biomarkers in the training group and test the peptide biomarkers in the testing group. Any help?
