Performs hierarchical clustering on the samples of the given dataset using multiple distance metrics and agglomeration methods for a single given region type.
rnb.execute.clustering(rnb.set, region.type = "sites")
Methylation dataset as an object of type inheriting
the clustering is performed on methylation levels from regions of that type.
List of clustering results, whereby each element is an object of type
In case clustering cannot be performed, the return value is
NULL. Reasons for a failure include, among
others, the case when
rnb.set contains less than 3 samples, or undefined distances between a pair of
samples due to (too many) missing values in the respective methylation matrix.
