1). The output of an unsupervised hierarchical cluster analysis is the dendrogram, in which sample relatedness is visualized by branches. Lower-order branches identify immediate neighbors, higher-order branches identify subgroups of samples. A dendrogram resulting from an unsupervised analysis readily reveals the relationship of all of the samples of a GEP study among each other, and may potentially result in the separation of the samples into subgroups or classes. Thus, this approach is suited for class discovery for identification of subcategories among a group of samples.

Another study found that pharmacological inhibitors of the NF-kB pathway have a potential in apoptosis induction of CLL cells, but not normal B cells (69). Toward this aim, GEP were generated that identified potential new NF-kB target genes in CLL. Finally, a GEP-based approach was employed to investigate the possible effects of the CLL tumor cells on other (nonmalignant) immune cells. Thus, T cells derived from untreated CLL patients displayed a distinct GEP compared with that of normal controls, and was cell-cell contact dependent, indicating that the tumor cells actively cause changes in the physiology of T cells in CLL patients that impair their normal function (70).
