We used the anti-epileptic drug brivaracetam as a case study and combine a hybrid data/knowledge-driven feature extraction with machine learning to systematically integrate clinical and genetic data from a clinical discovery dataset. We constructed a model that successfully predicts clinical drug response and show that even with limited sample size, integrating high-dimensional genetics data with clinical data can inform drug response prediction.
