MicroArray DataBase (mAdb)

In collaboration with the Genomic Technologies Section at NIAID and the Advanced Technology Center at NCI, the BioInformatics and Molecular Analysis Section (BIMAS), NIH Center for Information Technology, offers the mAdb microarray data analysis system.

Notice May 11, 2007: The Affymetrix Dataset creation/extraction tools have been updated. You now have a choice of methods for calculating representative expression values from probe level intensities. In addition to using the uploaded MAS5 calculated expression values, you have the choice of calculating expression values from the uploaded CEL files using the robust multi-array average (RMA) algorithm from the BioConductor package. More information about this update.
