Discovering new subclasses of pathologies and expression signatures related to specific phenotypes are challenging problems in the context of gene expression data analysis.
We present a method based on randomized embedding between euclidean subspaces to assess the stability of clusters characterized by low cardinality and very high dimensionality.
Results with synthetic and gene expression data clustered with classical hierarchical
clustering algorithms show the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
