GENE_CLUSTER
Cluster Genetic Expression Data
GENE_CLUSTER
is a FORTRAN90 program which
divides a set of genetic data into clusters.
The data comes from genetic expression experiments.
Each cluster will be defined in terms of a representative data
vector, and the clustering minimizes the sum of
the squares of the "distances" of each data point to its cluster
representative. Here, the "distance" may be either the Euclidean
distance or a similarity measure based on angles.
The data to be examined is assumed to be stored in a file.
The file is assumed to contain a number of records, with each
record stored on its own line.
Each record, in turn, contains a fixed number of data values
that describe a particular gene expression experiment.
Each record will be regarded as a point in N dimensional space.
The program will try to cluster the data, that is, to organize
the data by defining a number of cluster centers, which are
also points in N dimensional space, and assigning each record
to the cluster associated with a particular center.
The method of assigning data aims to minimize the cluster energy,
which is taken to be the sum of the squares of the distances of
each data point from its cluster center.
In some contexts, it makes sense to use the usual Euclidean sort
of distance. In others, it may make more sense to replace each
data record by a normalized version, and to assign distance
by computing angles between the unit vectors.
