A modular open-source application for microarray workflow and integrative datamining.
M@IA is an environment for DNA microarray data analysis allowing gene network reconstruction and a microarray integrated application which includes all of the steps of a microarray study, from MIAME-compliant raw data storage and processing gene expression analysis.
Furthermore, M@IA allows automatic gene annotation based on ontology, metabolic/signalling pathways, protein interaction, miRNA and transcriptional factor associations, as well as integrative analysis of gene interaction networks.
Statistical and graphical methods facilitate analysis, yielding new hypotheses on gene expression data.
M@IA is a new application for microarray management and data analysis, offering functional insights into microarray data by the combination of gene expression data and biological knowledge annotation based on interactive graphs
