Clustering Time-Series Gene Expression Data with Unequal Time Intervals
Clustering gene expression data given in terms of time-series is a challenging problem that imposes its own particular constraints, namely exchanging two or more time points is not possible as it would deliver quite different results, and also it would lead to erroneous biological conclusions. We have focused on issues related to clustering gene expression temporal profiles, and devised a novel algorithm for clustering gene temporal expression profile microarray data. The proposed clustering method introduces the concept of profile alignment which is achieved by minimizing the area between two aligned profiles. The overall pattern of expression in the time-series context is accomplished by applying agglomerative clustering combined with profile alignment, and finding the optimal number of clusters by means of a variant of a clustering index, which can effectively decide upon the optimal number of clusters for a given dataset. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is demonstrated o...
