Base clustering mode for the co-cluster matrix. The base clustering highlights only the item pairs that co-clustered within the selected clustering graying out the rest of the matrix. Base clustering helps users focus on comparisons with the selected clustering. In this figure, the colored areas represent the original 26 A. thaliana modules; their mostly pink hue indicates that their item pairs co-clustered in few clusterings. Large areas of gray indicate that many novel modules found by other clusterings were not found by the link clustering algorithm .
