THE PLS-GENETIC ALGORITHM TOOLBOX for MATLAB(TM)
University of Genoa, Italy
If you use the PLS-GA tools we would appreciate a reference to one of the following papers
R. Leardi and A. Lupiáñez
Genetic algorithms applied to feature selection in PLS regression: how and when to use them
Chemometrics and Intelligent Laboratory Systems 41(1998)195-207
Application of genetic algorithm-PLS for feature selection in spectral data sets
Journal of Chemometrics, 14(2000)643-655
The references and user guide can be found here. It also gives a short introduction to the methods (also included in the code-file below).
