The reason for this because the estimates of the gene scores are highly correlated. Consequently, most of the off-diagonal entries of the distance matrix used in the hierarchical clustering algorithm are close to one. However, the initial separation between the genes is greater using this method compared to that from performing hierarchical clustering on the gene expression data where the tumor class is not taken into account (data not shown). 4 Discussion In this article, we have developed a singular value decomposition regression modelling approach for correlating gene expression profiles with tumor class in microarray settings.

9 Our algorithm is most efficient with hierarchical clustering, since once a dendrogram is computed, varying the number of clusters is achieved at little additional computational expense. The datasets analysed in this paper were chosen for illustrative purposes for having a distinct structure. One might argue that many real world datasets do not have such an obvious number of clusters. g. thousands of genes from DNA microarrays) are usually unstable. We see that as a symptom that prior knowledge is needed to select meaningful subsets of 16 variables (genes) that can yield stable clusters.
