Cancer classification is an important problem both for clinical treatment and for biomedical research. Considering the good performance of support vector machines (SVMs) on solving pattern recognition problems, we use a C-SVM to process the B-cell lymphoma data. The principal components analysis (PCA) is used for gene selection. A voting scheme is used to do multi-group classification by k(k-1) binary SVMs. The classification results show that SVMs are effective tools for this problem.
