IS there a simple way to suppress the pop-up figure which is created automatically when calling clustergram()?

Do you mean clustergram (with an 's'), from the Bioinformatics toolbox?
I don't have that toolbox, but generally unless a function has an explicit option to prevent it generating its GUI there's nothing you can do.

Yes thanks.
I couldn't find anything in the documentation, but maybe someone has a tip?
Of course this works:
close all force
but it's less elegant and it slows down the running time

Since clustergram was designed to visualize data, there is not currently a documented way to keep a figure from appearing. However, one of the benefits of MATLAB is that you can view and modify the code for many of the functions that come with it. I don't know if this will work for you, but one workaround would be to modify clustergram and comment out or remove the call to view that causes the figure to appear.
