APCluster - An R Package for Affinity Propagation Clustering

Implements Affinity Propagation clustering introduced by Frey and Dueck (2007; DOI:10.1126/science.1136800). The algorithms are largely analogous to the ‘Matlab’ code published by Frey and Dueck. The package further provides leveraged affinity propagation and an algorithm for exemplar-based agglomerative clustering that can also be used to join clusters obtained from affinity propagation. Various plotting functions are available for analyzing clustering results.

This is the source code repository. The package can be installed from CRAN. Further information and installation instructions are also available from http://www.bioinf.jku.at/software/apcluster/.

The package is maintained by Ulrich Bodenhofer. The package itself has grown over the years in which multiple students have contributed significant parts: Johannes Palme, Chrats Melkonian, Andreas Kothmeier, and Nikola Kostic
