Table 1 Expected testing accuracy and standard errors (mean ± standard error, %) with classification models derived from best training, with the use of GLGS and SVMRFE feature selection algorithms and seven learning classifiers. Following the use of each feature selection algorithm on each data set, the best result as well as the classifier is highlighted in bold.
