I have used hclust to cluster a large data of 10K genes and 800 conditions and got 150 clusters as output.
How can I show that these clusters are stable?
What are the common metrics or parameters that are used to show that we have got a stable/robust cluster?
Is there any package that will do this?
Your reply will be very helpful. Thank you for your time in advance.
