Kerr, Gráinne and Ruskin, Heather J. and Crane, Martin and Doolan, Padraig (2008) Techniques for clustering gene expression data. Computers in Biology and Medicine, 38 (3). pp. 283-293. ISSN 0010-4825

Many clustering techniques have been proposed for the analysis of gene expression data obtained from microarray experiments. However, choice of suitable method(s) for a given experimental dataset is not straightforward. Common approaches do not translate well and fail to take account of the data profile. This review paper surveys state of the art applications which recognises these limitations and implements procedures to overcome them. It provides a framework for the evaluation of clustering in gene expression analyses. The nature of microarray data is discussed briefly. Selected examples are presented for the clustering methods considered.
