New CLValid Module
A new module for cluster validation, CLVALID, has been added to MeV’s
existing clustering tools. CLVALID uses the R package "clValid" to
compare the relative properties of 10 different clustering methods
across a several different numbers of clusters. This module aims to help
choose a method that is most compact, well-separated, connected, and
stable. It also optionally makes use of bioconductor annotation packages
to biologically validate the results.
New Annotation Support Files
The MeV team has built a new pipeline for producing the annotation files
that are used to support modules like EASE and to display chromosomal
location information and GO terms in the various gene table views
throughout MeV. The new annotations are collected from Bioconductor
v2.6, and are more complete than before. The files also include many new
arrays, such as Affymetrix's Exon (ST) arrays.
For a complete list of supported arrays, please see:
In the future, we will be able to easily add new arrays as the
Bioconductor team releases them, and to easily update these annotations
when a new Bioconductor version is integrated into MeV. As a rule, MeV
will provide annotation from the version of Bioconductor that is
supported by MeV's currently-supported version of R. Currently, that
version is R v2.11 and Bioconductor v2.6. This coordination is to ensure
that annotation used internally by R modules is consistent with any
annotation MeV displays.
Please let us know in the MeV forums.
