BAT: A New Biclustering Analysis Toolbox
In this paper, a new biclustering analysis toolbox called BAT, which is based on the BiHEA (Biclustering via a Hybrid Evolutionary Algorithm), is presented. The BiHEA is a memetic approach that integrates a Multi-Objective Evolutionary Algorithm (MOEA) with a local search technique in order to perform microarray biclustering. This method simultaneously considers several goals for optimization, giving as a result a set of biclusters that present a satisfactory trade-off between all of them. The novel software introduced in this article provides the possibility of running the BiHEA along with several pre-processing facilities for the input data and different visualization and statistical tools for the analysis of the biclusters.
