ExpressionPlot: a web-based framework for analysis of RNA-Seq and microarray gene expression data

Genome Biol. 2011 Jul 28;12(7):R69. doi: 10.1186/gb-2011-12-7-r69.


RNA-Seq and microarray platforms have emerged as important tools for detecting changes in gene expression and RNA processing in biological samples. We present ExpressionPlot, a software package consisting of a default back end, which prepares raw sequencing or Affymetrix microarray data, and a web-based front end, which offers a biologically centered interface to browse, visualize, and compare different data sets. Download and installation instructions, a user's manual, discussion group, and a prototype are available at
