[…] high-dimensional or high-throughput fc data. to address the gating problem, researchers have proposed several automated clustering algorithms, such as flame (), flock (), flowclust (), flowmeans (), samspectral (), swift (), etc. aghaeepour et al. () provides a state-of-the-art summary of the field., different algorithms perform better for different fc datasets as was observed in a set […]

[…] markers. the staining panel contains antibodies to surface markers and intracellular proteins., additionally, we compared our method against four well-known algorithms in the field: flame [], samspectral [], flowmerge [], and flowmeans []., a challenge in evaluation of the datasets is that all the three datasets use distinct reference labels as the ground truth assigned using manual […]

[…] models, t-mixture models and skew-t models []. these methods show robustness that follows predefined models, but they might be slow at estimating model parameters of high-dimensional dataset. samspectral [] is an example of the graph-based methods, while multidimensional clustering approaches available include spade [], flowmeans [] and flock []. here, we investigated whether one […]

[…] were used as guidance, the f-scores improved dramatically, with five algorithms ending up with scores of 0.90 or greater. as before, this not only included adicyt, flowmeans, and flock but also samspectral () and tclust (). the overall conclusion from this challenge was that although some packages performed better than others, most performed well and this was largely dependent […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1003365

[…] clustering approaches have recently been developed, including model-based algorithms (e.g., flowclust and flame ), density-based algorithms (e.g., flock and swift), graph-based approaches (e.g., samspectral ), and, most recently, hybrids of several approaches (flowmeans and flowpeaks ). these algorithms are different in terms of memory and time complexity, their software requirements, […]
