in recent years the importance of finding a meaningful pattern from huge datasets has become more challenging. Data miners try to adopt innovative methods to face this problem by applying feature selection methods. In this paper we propose a new hybrid method in which we use a combination of resampling, filtering the sample domain and wrapper subset evaluation method with genetic search to reduce dimensions of Lung-Cancer dataset that we received from UCI Repository of Machine Learning databases. Finally, we apply some well- known classification algorithms (Naïve Bayes, Logistic, Multilayer Perceptron, Best First Decision Tree and JRIP) to the resulting dataset and compare the results and prediction rates before and after the application of our feature selection method on that dataset. The results show a substantial rogress in the average performance of five classification algorithms simultaneously and the classification error for these classifiers decreases considerably. The experiments also show that this method outperforms other feature selection methods with a lower cost.
