Cancer is one of the most deadly diseases in the world. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) noted 14.1 million new cancer cases and 8.2 million deaths from cancer in 2012. In the last few years, DNA microarray technology has increasingly been used to analyze and diagnose cancer. Analysis of gene expression data in the form of microarray allows medical experts to ascertain whether or not a person suffers from cancer. DNA microarray data has a large dimension that can affect the process and accuracy of cancer classification. Therefore, a classification scheme that includes dimension reduction is needed. In this research, a Principal Component Analysis (PCA) dimension reduction method that includes the calculation of variance proportion for eigenvector selection was used. For the classification method, a Support Vector Machine (SVM) and Levenberg-Marquardt Backpropagation (LMBP) algorithm were selected. Based on the tests performed, the classification method using LMBP was more stable than SVM. The LMBP method achieved an average 96.07% accuracy, while the SVM achieved 94.98% accuracy.
