Summary of "PSO-CFDP: A Particle Swarm Optimization-Based Automatic Density Peaks Clustering Method for Cancer Subtyping."

Cancer subtyping is of great importance for the prediction, diagnosis, and precise treatment of cancer patients. Many clustering methods have been proposed for cancer subtyping. In 2014, a clustering algorithm named Clustering by Fast Search and Find of Density Peaks (CFDP) was proposed and published in Science, which has been applied to cancer subtyping and achieved attractive results. However, CFDP requires to set two key parameters (cluster centers and cutoff distance) manually, while their optimal values are difficult to be determined. To overcome this limitation, an automatic clustering method named PSO-CFDP is proposed in this paper, in which cluster centers and cutoff distance are automatically determined by running an improved particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm multiple times. Experiments using PSO-CFDP, as well as LR-CFDP, STClu, CH-CCFDAC, and CFDP, were performed on four benchmark data-sets and two real cancer gene expression datasets. The results show that PSO-CFDP can determine cluster centers and cutoff distance automatically within controllable time/cost and, therefore, improve the accuracy of cancer subtyping.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Separation of particles according to density by employing a gradient of varying densities. At equilibrium each particle settles in the gradient at a point equal to its density. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

Low-density subclass of the high-density lipoproteins, with particle sizes between 8 to 13 nm.

A technique used to separate particles according to their densities in a continuous density gradient. The sample is usually mixed with a solution of known gradient materials and subjected to centrifugation. Each particle sediments to the position at which the gradient density is equal to its own. The range of the density gradient is usually greater than that of the sample particles. It is used in purifying biological materials such as proteins, nucleic acids, organelles, and cell types.

Intermediate-density subclass of the high-density lipoproteins, with particle sizes between 7 to 8 nm. As the larger lighter HDL2 lipoprotein, HDL3 lipoprotein is lipid-rich.

A highly dense subclass of the high-density lipoproteins, with particle sizes below 7 nm. They are also known as nascent HDL, composed of a few APOLIPOPROTEIN A-I molecules which are complexed with PHOSPHOLIPIDS. The lipid-poor pre-beta-HDL particles serve as progenitors of HDL3 and then HDL2 after absorption of free cholesterol from cell membranes, cholesterol esterification, and acquisition of apolipoproteins A-II, Cs, and E. Pre-beta-HDL initiate the reverse cholesterol transport process from cells to liver.
