get_subdendrograms: Extract a list of _k_ subdendrograms from a given dendrogram...

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

View source: R/get_subdendrograms.R

Description

Extracts a list (dendlist) of subdendrogram structures based on the cutree cutree.dendrogram function from a given dendrogram object. It can be useful in case we're interested in a visual investigation of specific clustering results.

Usage

1
get_subdendrograms(dend, k, order_clusters_as_data = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

dend

a dendrogram object

k

the number of subdendrograms that should be extracted

order_clusters_as_data

passed to cutree, default is FALSE (while the cutree default is TRUE). The reason is since it's easier to look at the dendrogram plot and then get subtrees that are in the same order is in the plot/dendrogram object. This is in contrast to more traditional use of cutree, where it is used with the original order or rows from the data.

...

parameters that should be passed to the cutree cutree.dendrogram

Value

A list of k subdendrograms, based on the cutree cutree.dendrogram clustering clusters.
