Clustering methods classify patterns into clusters using the entire set of attributes of patterns in the similarity measurement. In plenty of cases, patterns are similar under a subset of attributes only. The class of methods that cluster patterns based on subsets of attributes is called biclustering. Biclustering simultaneously groups on both rows and columns of a data matrix and has been applied to various fields, especially gene expression data. However, the biclustering problem is

In this paper, we introduce a novel GA-based algorithm that uses hyperplane to describe the linear relationships between rows (genes) in a sub-matrix (bicluster). The performance of our algorithm is tested via simulated data, gene expression data and compared with several other bicluster methods.
