BioVLAB-Microarray: Microarray Data Analysis in Virtual Environment
Source: Indiana University
Microarray technology is a high-throughput experimental technique that can measure expression levels of hundreds of thousands of genes simultaneously. To interpret massive data from gene-expression microarray experiments, biologists encounter computational and analytical challenges. This is especially challenging for small research labs that lack local computing and bioinformatics expertise. Here, the authors introduce a virtual analysis system for microarray gene expression data in computing clouds with flexible and configurable GUI workflow engine so that biologists are able to analyze the data in many angles without worrying about computational and bioinformatics issues.
