Bioinformatics methods for the analysis of expression arrays: data clustering and information extraction

J Biotechnol. 2002 Sep 25;98(2-3):269-83. doi: 10.1016/s0168-1656(02)00137-2.


Expression arrays facilitate the monitoring of changes in the expression patterns of large collections of genes. The analysis of expression array data has become a computationally-intensive task that requires the development of bioinformatics technology for a number of key stages in the process, such as image analysis, database storage, gene clustering and information extraction. Here, we review the current trends in each of these areas, with particular emphasis on the development of the related technology being carried out within our groups.
