Microarray technology has created a revolution in the field of biological research. Association rules can not only group the similarly expressed genes but also discern relationships among genes. We propose a new row-enumeration rule mining method to mine high confidence rules from microarray data. It is a support-free algorithm that directly uses the confidence measure to effectively prune the search space. Experiments on Leukemia microarray data set show that proposed algorithm outperforms support-based rule mining with respect to scalability and rule extraction.
