New software: BiBench

Tue 13 December 2011 by Kemal Eren

My associates and I at the HPC Lab have just released some new software: BiBench, a Python package for biclustering. In addition to lots of other functionality, It provides a common interface to twelve biclustering algorithms, including our own CPB algorithm.

BiBench makes biclustering gene expression datasets easy. In only a few lines of code you can download a GDS dataset, bicluster it, and perform GO enrichment analysis on the genes of the resulting biclusters. Though we developed BiBench to specifically target gene expression data, it is useful for any data that may be meaningfully biclustered.

A download link, installation instructions, a tutorial, and complete documentation of all of BiBench’s modules are available at the project page.
