Abstract MOTIVATION: We investigate two new Bayesian classification algorithms incorporating feature selection. These algorithms are applied to the classification of gene expression data derived from cDNA microarrays. RESULTS: We demonstrate the effectiveness of the algorithms on three gene expression datasets for cancer, showing they compare well with alternative kernel-based techniques. By automatically incorporating feature selection, accurate classifiers can be constructed utilizing very few features and with minimal hand-tuning. We argue that the feature selection is meaningful and some of the highlighted genes appear to be medically important.
