Partial least squares (PLS) regression is a dimension reduction method used in many areas of scientific discoveries. However, it has been shown that the consistency property of the PLS algorithm does not extend to cases with very large number of variables p and small number of samples n (i.e., p>>n). To overcome the issue, sparsity can be imposed to the dimension reduction step of the PLS algorithm. This leads to a sparse version of PLS (SPLS) algorithm which can achieve dimension reduction and variable selection simultaneously. Here, we present a new SPLS method called sure-independence-screening based sparse partial least squares (SIS-SPLS) algorithm, by incorporating both SIS method and extended Bayesian information criterion (BIC) into the PLS algorithm. The developed SIS-SPLS method was evaluated using a number of numerical studies including simulation and real datasets. The current results showed that the proposed SIS-SPLS method is efficient in variable selection. It offered low mean squared prediction errors with high sensitivity and specificity. The SIS-SPLS algorithm proposed in the current work may serve as an alternative SPLS method for the analysis of modern biological data.
