The Support Vector Machine (SVM) Calculator accepts gene expression values from log2 normalized microarray data and copy number values as integers. It can also accept qRT-PCR data, but equal width binning is necessary for comparison to the training set. The SVMs were trained on a set of 49 cell lines for the paclitaxel sensitivity calculator and 44 for the gemcitabine sensitivity calculator. Subsequently, SVMs for doxorubicin, epirubicin, methotrexate, tamoxifen and 5-fluorouracil were built using 84 breast cancer patient data from METABRIC, treated with either chemotherapy or both chemo- and hormone therapy. Additional models were built for cisplatin, carboplatin and oxaliplatin, based on 39, 46 and 47 breast cancer patients respectively. After you input expression and/or copy number data, the calculator will return the score - the distance from the SVM hyperplane - and the prediction for whether the cell line or patient is sensitive or resistant.
