A Novel Method for Feature Gene Selection Based on Geodesic Distance
Abstract:Selecting feature genes is very important to identify disease and benefit to make drug. Today, clustering methods have been successfully applied to feature gene selection. In this paper, we use geodesic distance, instead of Euclidean distance, to cluster similar genes, as Geodesic distance can show the true geometric structure of the genes. We select the genes with the highest Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) at each cluster, which is called feature gene subset. In order to get the number of clusters, a support vector machine (SVM) is used to train the subset which minimizes bounds on leave-one-out error. Then we select the subset with the smallest number which has better classification performance. The result of our experiments shows our method can be succesfully used to select feature genes with clustering algorithm.
