(1998) PNAS 95:14863.|
|CAGED||CAGED (Cluster Analysis of Gene Expression Dynamics) is a computer program for the analysis of temporal gene expression data. CAGED is based on a method called Bayesian Clustering by Dynamics, which identifies the most probable set of clusters given a set of time series (it can be used as a Bayesian clustering program on a-temporal expression data).|
|Cyber-T||Cyber-T is a a microarray analysis web interface from UCI's Institute for Genomics and Bioinformatics. It accommodates both paired (2-dye) data and data in which control and experiment are on separate experiments (e.g. affymetrix based data). It also supports Bayesian statistical approaches and Bonferroni corrections for significance analysis of differentially expressed clones. GeneX database and analysis tools are written in R and can also be installed locally.|
|TM4 (TIGR)||A package of open source software programs for microarray analysis from J. Craig Venter Institute. The suite includes MIDAS (Microarray Data Analysis System), MADAM (MicroArray DAta Manager), MEV (MultiExperiment Viewer) and the image processing tool Spotfinder. |
|SNOMAD||A collection of algorithms written in R statistical language, directed at the normalization and standardization of DNA microarray data. Useful mostly for paired microarray data.|
|BRB Array Tools||Integrated microsoft excel add-in useful for visualization and statistical analysis of DNA microarray data. Genes can also be annotated by linking to NCBI databases using clone identifiers.|

|DAVID and EASE (NIH)||
DAVID (Database for Annotation, Visualization and Integrated Discovery) and EASE (the Expression Analysis Systematic Explorer)provide integrated solutions for the annotation and analysis of genome-scale datasets derived from high-throughput technologies such as microarray and proteomic platforms. |
|Cytoscape||Cytoscape is an open source bioinformatics software platform for visualizing molecular interaction networks and integrating these interactions with gene expression profiles and other state data.|
|Onto-Express||Onto-Express systematically translates genetic fingerprints into functional profiles. Using strings of accession or cluster identification numbers, Onto-Express searches the public databases and returns tables that correlate expression profiles with the cytogenetic gene locations, the biochemical and molecular functions, the biological processes, cellular components and cellular roles of the translated proteins.|
