progenyClust: Finding the Optimal Cluster Number Using Progeny Clustering

Implementing the Progeny Clustering algorithm, the 'progenyClust' package assesses the clustering stability and identifies the optimal clustering number for a given data matrix. It uses k-means clustering as a default, provides a tailored hierarchical clustering function, and can be customized to work with other clustering algorithms and different parameter settings. The package includes a main function progenyClust(), plot and summary methods for 'progenyClust' object, a function hclust.progenyClust() for hierarchical clustering, and two example datasets (test and cell) for testing.
