Microarrays offer unprecedented possibilities for the so-called omic, e.g., genomic and proteomic, research. However, they are also quite challenging data to analyze. The aim of this paper is to provide a short tutorial on the most common approaches used for pattern discovery and cluster analysis as they are currently used for microarrays, in the hope to bring the attention of the Algorithmic Community on novel aspects of classification and data analysis that deserve attention and have potential for high reward.
