Abstract

Motivation: Gene expression profiles have been successfully applied to class prediction. Due to a large number of genes (features) and a small number of samples in gene expression data, feature selection is essential when performing the prediction task. Many methods have been proposed to select features in microarray data analysis, but there is no unique method which performs uniformly well for all the learning algorithms. It is then practical to find a feature selction method and a learning algorithm that give superior performance. Results: In this paper, we present an integrated scheme to perform the task of class prediction based on gene expression profiles. The scheme incorporates a simple novel feature selection procedure into naive Bayes models. Each selected gene has a high score of discriminatory power determined by the Brown-Forsythe test statistic. Any pair of selected genes have a low correlation. This facilitates the use of the conditional independence among genes assumed by the naive Bayes models. To demonstrate the effectiveness, the proposed scheme was applied to three commonly used expression data sets COLON, OVARIAN, and LEUKEMIA. The results show that the numbers of misclassified samples are 0, 0, and 4, respectively.
