Functional Grouping of Genes Using Spectral Clustering and Gene Ontology


With the invention of high throughput methods, researchers are capable of producing large amounts of biological data. During the analysis of such data the need of a functional grouping of genes arises. In this paper, we propose a new method based on spectral clustering for the partitioning of genes according to their biological function. The functional information is based on Gene Ontology annotation, a mechanism to capture knowledge in a shareable and computer processable form. Our functional cluster method promises to automatize, speed up and therefore improve biological data analysis.
