New resampling method for evaluating stability of clusters

BY IN Journal Club, Machine learning, Methods NO COMMENTS YET , ,

A measure of cluster stability is needed to discriminate between real clusters from random ones, which arise due to random variation of gene expression measurements from both technical and biological variation. In this study, Gana Dresen et al. propose a new “continuous weights” method to measure cluster stability that uses resampling in a manner similar
