Very generic question and perhaps a bit of a strange one.
I have some data that includes cases and controls. I have created a heatmap and tried some hierarchical clustering using the morpheus software (https://software.broadinstitute.org/morpheus/).
What is clear is that no clustering occurs between cases and controls, and this is in fact what we expected and want to show. We want to show that the measured variable does not distinguish between cases and controls.
Apart from saying visually no clear clusters emerge are there ay objective measures that can be used to say no significant clustering occurs between two groups?
Any pointers or reading much appreciated, I am even struggling to think about what search terms to use to look this up.
