Multiclass classification in cancer diagnostics, using DNA or Gene Expression Signatures, but also classification of bacteria species fingerprints in MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry data, is challenging because of imbalanced data and the high number of dimensions with respect to the number of instances. In this study, a new oversampling technique called LICIC will be presented as a valuable instrument in countering both class imbalance, and the famous "curse of dimensionality" problem. The method enables preservation of non-linearities within the dataset, while creating new instances without adding noise. The method will be compared with other oversampling methods, such as Random Oversampling, SMOTE, Borderline-SMOTE, and ADASYN. F1 scores show the validity of this new technique when used with imbalanced, multiclass, and high-dimensional datasets.
