## A biclustering algorithm for extracting bit-patterns from binary datasets

### Description

BiBitR is a simple R wrapper which directly calls the original Java code for applying the BiBit algorithm.
The original Java code can be found at http://eps.upo.es/bigs/BiBit.html by Domingo S. Rodriguez-Baena, Antonia J. Perez-Pulido and Jesus S. Aguilar-Ruiz.

The BiBitR package also includes the following functions and/or workflows:

A slightly adapted version of the original BiBit algorithm which now allows allows noise when adding rows to the bicluster (`bibit2`

).

A function which accepts a pattern and, using the BiBit algorithm, will find biclusters fully or partly fitting the given pattern (`bibit3`

).

A workflow which can discover larger patterns (and their biclusters) using BiBit and classic hierarchical clustering approaches (`BiBitWorkflow`

).
