Gene selection is a key problem in gene expression based cancer recognition and related tasks. A measure, called neighborhood mutual information (NMI), is introduced to evaluate the relevance between genes and related decision in this work. Then the measure is combined with the search strategy of minimal redundancy and maximal relevancy (mRMR) for constructing a NMI based mRMR gene selection algorithm (NMI_mRMR). In addition, it is also found that the first k best genes with respect to NMI are… CONTINUE READING
