A robust clustering approach for NMR spectra of natural product extracts
MetadataShow full item record
A robust method was developed to cluster similar NMR spectra from partially purified extracts obtained from a range of marine sponges and a plant biota. The NMR data were acquired using microtiter plate NMR (VAST) in protonated solvents. A simple data set which contained several clusters was used to optimize the protocol. The evaluation of the robustness was performed using three different clustering methods: tree clustering analysis, K-means clustering and multidimensional scaling. These methods were compared for consistency using the sample data set and the optimized methodology was applied to clustering of a set of spectra from partially purified biota extracts.
