I don't think anybody will be able to answer this question for you. If I
use the same code on the sample.ExpressionSet that comes with the
Biobase package, it seems to me that the rows are ordered quite well, so
I wonder what exactly you don't like about the row ordering of your data.
Anyway, there are any number of clustering methods you can use with the
hclust() function, of which 'average' is only one. You might try some of
the other clustering methods to see if you get something more to your
