Mining Microarray Gene Expression Data for Cancers - correlation analysis and neighborhood based interestingness analysis of emerging patterns
Latest commit b0d25c2 Dec 18, 2012 @modestkdr updated README file


This is project work for Data Mining class, part of my Master's degree.


Mining Microarray data - correlation analysis and, neighborhood based interestingness analysis of emerging patterns.

The given data is discretized using entropy-based discretization and FP-growth algorithm is used to mine minimal genesets correlated with a class. Emerging patterns are mined for each class and, interestingness analysis is done based on total distance of a pattern.

FP­‐growth algorithm implementation for Java has been obtained from ‘SPMF’. http://www.philippe-­‐fournier-­‐


I am not an expert in Java so, some of the code may be redundant.
