Feature gene selection of tumor classification is an important means to find the expression of tumor-specific genes. To study the tumor gene expression pattern, k-means clustering analysis method is considered. It is used for selecting the best genetic center, extracting scalar features and determining the corresponding gene label. The experimental results show that the correct rate of the classification results by this method is 87 %.
