Abstract: In this study, we compared two feature extraction methods (PCA, PLS) and seven feature selection methods (mRMR and its variations, MaxRel, QPFS) on four different classifiers (SVM, RF, KNN, NN). We use ratio comparison validation for PCA method and 10-folds cross validation method for both the feature extraction and feature selection methods. We use Leukemia data set and Colon data set to apply the combinations and measured accuracy as well as area under ROC. The results illustrated that feature selection and extraction methods can both somehow improve the performance of classification tasks on microarray data sets. Some combinations of classifier and feature preprocessing method can greatly improve the accuracy as well as the AUC value are given in this study.
