Microarray Resources

Microbiology and Molecular Biology

The technology and applications of microarrays in the areas of molecular biology, biotechnology, medicine and bioscience are discussed in a two-volume book:
Volume 1: Lab-on-a-Chip Technology: Fabrication and Microfluidics
Volume 2: Lab-on-a-Chip Technology: Biomolecular Separation and Analysis

Stanford Microarray Database (SMD)
Stores raw and normalized data from microarray experiments, as well as their corresponding image files. In addition, SMD provides interfaces for data retrieval, analysis and visualization. Starting from the home page and clicking on Public Search, public expression data can be retrieved. The Basic Search option is designed to allow the user to simply browse the data based on either their desired results, prior knowledge, or interests. Using the Basic Search, you can choose various criteria to select experiments whose data you wish to view or analyse by clustering. The Basic Search is conducted through 3 simple choices: Results Type, Organism, and Data Identifier. Each choice is limited to a single value. Users wishing to query either with multiple values (organisms, categories) or by experimenter and subcategory should use the Advanced Results Search instead read more ...

Microarray SOURCE
SOURCE is specifically designed to facilitate the analysis of large sets of data that biologists can now produce using genome-scale experimental approaches. Enter a gene name or gene symbol to get all the information found about that gene, including microarray expression data stored in SMD. Then get all the publications related to the microarray experiment done on that gene, whose date are stored in SMD. After that view how the gene is expressed in various samples and access the expression data of similar genes, ordered according to pre-computed cluster analysis read more ...

Microarray GeneCards
GeneCards integrates a subset of the information stored in major data sources dealing with human genes and their products (with a major focus on medical aspects). GeneCards allows the access to expression data extracted from ESTs libraries analysis. Enter a keyword for the searched gene and from the result page access the expression data calculated from ESTs data. Then from the result page access the expression data calculated experimentally using microarray experiments read more ...

Gene Expression Omnibus
A public repository for a wide range of high-throughput experimental data. These data include single and dual channel microarray-based experiments measuring mRNA, genomic DNA and protein abundance, as well as non-array techniques such as serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE), and mass spectrometry proteomic data. GEO was developed at NCBI and works using the ENTREZ database system. Query for a given gene and retrieve the found gene expression data. Then locate related data of interes. Related data of interest may be located using the Profile neighbours and Sequence neighbours links found on Entrez GEO documents. Clicking on the plotted profile image, see the details of that profile. Profile neighbours retrieves other genes/molecules that show a similar profile shape over that dataset, possibly inferring some common function or regulatory elements. Sequence neighbours searches all GEO datasets for related genes based on nucleotide sequence similarity, and thus may be useful in identifying sequence homologues such as related gene family members, or for cross-species comparisons read more ...

The Microarray Gene Expression Data (MGED) Society
An international organization of biologists, computer scientists, and data analysts that aims to facilitate the sharing of microarray data generated by functional genomics and proteomics experiments read more ...

ArrayExpress is a public repository for microarray data. Besides the browsing and querying of the data it offers the possibility to export the data for further analysis with the EBI's free analysis software, Expression profiler read more ...

Expression Profiler
A set of tools for clustering, analysis and visualization of gene expression and other genomic data. Tools in the Expression Profiler allow to perform cluster analysis, pattern discovery, pattern visualization, study and search Gene Ontology categories, generate sequence logos, extract regulatory sequences, study protein interactions, as well as to link analysis results to external tools and databases read more ...
