MicroPreP: a cDNA microarray data pre-processing framework

Appl Bioinformatics. 2003;2(4):241-4.


The user-friendly MicroPreP framework was developed to transform raw intensity data from cDNA microarrays into high-quality data. The main features of this software are: LOWESS normalisation; merging of DNA microarray data from changing slide versions; outlier detection; and slide quality assessment.
