Two-channel microarray shows special strength for small genomes such as bacteria microarray studies. There are several software packages for two-channel microarray image analysis. BlueFuse is a new program developed by Cambridge BlueGnome Ltd. It does automatic grid placement, quantification, spot confidence estimation, and multiple-image batch processing using Bayesian algorithms. It also comes with many normalization protocols based on different image conditions. BlueFuse also provides CGH (Comparative Genomic Hybridization) analysis for tiling arrays.

In this tutorial we will walk through the image analysis of BlueFuse using demo data.
