Kavetsky Institute of Experimental Pathology, Oncology and Radiobiology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Kyiv The goal of publication was the analysis of cluster methods and possibility of their application in biotechnology. The evidences found in scientific literature were summarized and analyzed. This article gives a brief description of cluster analysis — basic principles, some examples of their application are given for biotechnological problems. Results of the biotechnological studies that required application of cluster methods in combination with other mathematical approaches are considered. The conclusion contains an evaluation of the performed analysis as well as recommendations on the application of cluster analysis methods in biotechnology.

Key words: cluster analysis, biotechnology.
