r-varselrf 0.7-8 Variable selection using random forests

This package provides tools for the variable selection from random forests using both backwards variable elimination (for the selection of small sets of non-redundant variables) and selection based on the importance spectrum (somewhat similar to scree plots; for the selection of large, potentially highly-correlated variables). The main applications are in high-dimensional data (e.g., microarray data, and other genomics and proteomics applications).
