A new algorithm for comparing and visualizing relationships between hierarchical and flat gene expression data clusterings
Motivation: Clustering is one of the most widely used methods in unsupervised gene expression data analysis. The use of different clustering algorithms or different parameters often produces rather different results on the same data. Biological interpretation of multiple clustering results requires understanding how different clusters relate to each other. It is particularly non-trivial to compare the results of a hierarchical and a flat, e.g. k-means, clustering.
