Implementation of new clustering techniques into Cytoscape

by Abhiraj Tomar for National Resource for Network Biology (NRNB)

The process of clustering assigns similar objects to the same group and dissimilar objects to different groups and the resulting data partition enhances data understanding. In biological domains, we are often interested in determining the group structure in data but the results can depend on chosen method's assumptions. Algorithms need to be compared on the basis of desirable clustering features, and outline algorithms’ benefits and drawbacks to match them to biomedical applications.
