First of all, thank you for your support. As you probably know, our current goal is to find the best parameters for our algorithm and to discover meaningful relations between them. The first phase of this experiment is over and your efforts have paid off!
Here you can see the similarity in the results with respect to different parameters:
These heatmaps highlight a strong influence of the tile_size parameter on the similarity of the results. Also, there's a kind of 'stable' zone with tile_size >= 750. Without going into details, this is an important hint on how to split the computational work while ensuring consistent results. Our current research work is aimed at validating the results by comparing them with the latest biological knowledge.
If you have any question, feel free to ask!
Moreover, as Nadir stated on a different post (http://gene.disi.unitn.it/test/forum_thread.php?id=84#403) a new phase started, so please keep crunching numbers :)
Have a nice day!
