BiVisu

BiVisu: software tool for bicluster detection and visualization. Summary: BiVisu is an open-source software tool for detecting and visualizing biclusters embedded in a gene expression matrix. Through the use of appropriate coherence relations, BiVisu can detect constant, constant-row, constant-column, additive-related as well as multiplicative-related biclusters. The biclustering results are then visualized under a 2D setting for easy inspection. In particular, parallel coordinate (PC) plots for each bicluster are displayed, from which objective and subjective cluster quality evaluation can be performed. Availability: BiVisu has been developed in Matlab and is available at http://www.eie.polyu.edu.hk/ nflaw/Biclustering/
