What are clusters analyzed in the Rotor-Gene ScreenClust HRM Software?

Clusters analyzed in the Rotor-Gene ScreenClust HRM Software are groups of samples with the same melt characteristics. For example, in a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analysis the clusters may represent the genotypes 'wild type', 'mutant' and 'heterozygote'. ScreenClust is designed to group samples into clusters after they are separated based on differences in their melt curves. The clusters can either be defined by control samples (supervised mode) or ScreenClust can determine the appropriate number of clusters (unsupervised mode).
