Dimension reduction with redundant gene elimination for tumor classification
Background: Analysis of gene expression data for tumor classification is an important application of bioinformatics methods. But it is hard to analyse gene expression data from DNA microarray experiments by commonly used classifiers, because there are only a few observations but with thousands of measured genes in the data set. Dimension reduction is often used to handle such a high dimensional problem, but it is obscured by the existence of amounts of redundant features in the microarray data set. Results: Dimension reduction is performed by combing feature extraction with redundant gene elimination for tumor classification. A novel metric of redundancy based on DIScriminative Contribution (DISC) is proposed which estimates the feature similarity by explicitly building a linear classifier on each gene. Compared with the standard linear correlation metric, DISC takes the label information into account and directly estimates the redundancy of the discriminative ability of two given fea...
