Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: In this paper, the candidate gene discriminating gliomas identification via a supervised iteration of bipartitive k-mean is presented. Gliomas are supervisedly discriminated by identifying, via iterative bipartitive division according to principal directions initializing k-means, salient genes able to cluster representative patients, thus also giving an insight about degrees of epigenetic similarity among different kinds of gliomas

KEYWORDS: K-means, PCA, clustering, salient genes identification
