In the current genomics, to design a classifier is one the main goals since genomic signal processing explain most of the cellular biological processes. In the present work, we propose a technique towards a classifier for cancer that can aid clinical diagnosis/prognosis. Our proposal is based on the well-known rule induction method and entropy for calculation in genomic information. The genes have been classified, and the rate of misclassification has been carried out. The errors originated in this study have been considered.
