  1. The classification models were trained (257 samples) and tested (85 samples) on exon-array data. Highest accuracy for each classification method is marked in bold. While SVM in combination with RF_based_FS performed best whit the highest accuracy for both FC data (without discretization) and k-means discretised data, the other three classifiers (RF, NB and PAM) in combination with RF_based_FS achieved comparable classification accuracies on Eaual-W discretized data.
