Description

group a gene's assembled transcripts into clusters

Usage

1
clusterTranscripts(gene, gown, k = NULL, method = c("hclust", "kmeans"))

Arguments

gene

name of gene whose transcripts will be clustered. When using Cufflinks output, usually of the form "XLOC_######"

gown

ballgown object containing experimental data

k

number of clusters to use

method

clustering method to use. Must be one of "hclust", for hierarchical clustering, or "kmeans", for k-means clustering.

Value

list with elements clusters and pctvar. clusters contains columns "cluster" and "t_id", and denotes which transcripts belong to which clusters. pctvar is only non-NULL when using k-means clustering and is the percentage of variation explained by these clusters, defined as the ratio of the between-cluster sum of squares to the total sum of squares.
