Description Details Note Author(s) References Examples

Contains the Markov cluster algorithm (MCL) by van Dongen (2000) for identifying clusters in networks and graphs. The algorithm simulates random walks on a (n x n) matrix as the adjacency matrix of a graph. It alternates an expansion step and an inflation step until an equilibrium state is reached.

The Markov Cluster Algorithm (MCL) is a method to identify clusters in undirected network graphs. It is suitable for high-dimensional data (e.g. gene expression data).

The original MCL uses the adjacency matrix of a graph (propsed by van Dongen (2000)). The function `mcl`

in this package allows in addition the input of a (n x n) matrix.

We thank Moritz Hanke for his help in realizing this package.
