TM4 microarray software suite

Methods Enzymol. 2006;411:134-93. doi: 10.1016/S0076-6879(06)11009-5.

Abstract

Powerful specialized software is essential for managing, quantifying, and ultimately deriving scientific insight from results of a microarray experiment. We have developed a suite of software applications, known as TM4, to support such gene expression studies. The suite consists of open-source tools for data management and reporting, image analysis, normalization and pipeline control, and data mining and visualization. An integrated MIAME-compliant MySQL database is included. This chapter describes each component of the suite and includes a sample analysis walk-through.
