ExpressYourself -- a modular platform for processing and visualizing microarray data

What you can do:
Use this fully integrated platform for processing microarray data.
Highlights:
  • In completely automated fashion, it will correct the background array signal, normalize the Cy5 and Cy3 signals, score levels of differential hybridization, combine the results of replicate experiments, filter problematic regions of the array and assess the quality of individual and replicate experiments.
  • ExpressYourself is designed with a highly modular architecture so various types of microarray analysis algorithms can readily be incorporated as they are developed; for example, the system currently implements several normalization methods, including those that simultaneously consider signal intensity and slide location.
  • The program can handle gene expression, chromatin immunoprecipitated DNA probings (ChIp-chip), and most comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) data.
  • The processed data are presented using a web-based graphical interface to facilitate comparison with the original images of the array slides.
  • In particular, Express Yourself is able to regenerate images of the original microarray after applying various steps of processing, which greatly facilities identification of position-specific artifacts.
