CIMminer generates color-coded Clustered Image Maps (CIMs) ("heat maps") to represent "high-dimensional" data sets such as gene expression profiles. We introduced CIMs in the mid-1990's for data on drug activity, target expression, gene expression, and proteomic profiles. Clustering of the axes brings like together with like to create patterns of color. (Weinstein, et al., Science 1997; 275:343-349). To learn more details, look at the following articles.
