-The selection of attributes becomes more important, but also more difficult, as the size and dimensionality of data sets grows, particularly in bioinformatics. Targeted Projection Pursuit is a dimension reduction technique previously applied to visualising high-dimensional data; here it is applied to the problem of feature selection. The technique avoids searching the powerset of possible feature combinations by using perceptron learning and attraction-repulsion algorithms to find projections that separate classes in the data. The technique is tested on a range of gene expression data sets. It is found that the classification generalisation performance of the features selected by TPP compares well with standard wrapper and filter approaches, the selection of features generalises more robustly than either, and its time efficiency scales to larger numbers of attributes better than standard searches.
