BicOverlapper is a framework to support visual analysis of gene expression by means of biclustering.
Biclustering algorithms have become a spread technique to analyze microarray experiments. Since it is an unsupervised technique, biclustering is specially useful at discovering new knowledge about genes.
In order to improve the visualization of biclusters, we propose Overlapper, a visualization technique to simultaneously represent all biclusters from one or more biclustering algorithms, based on a force-directed layout. This visualization technique is integrated in BicOverlapper, along with several other visualization techniques and biclustering algorithms.
