Location: 402 Walter
Instructor(s): Haoyu Yu, MSI

Want to use a tool similar to R/Bioconductor, but with GUI?

Most researchers conducting microarray analysis are familiar with R/Bioconductor, but many don’t know that the most common features of R/Bioconductor plus a graphical user interface (GUI) are available in S-PLUS ArrayAnalyzer2.1. GUI makes this program more intuitive and easier to use because no coding is necessary.

S-PLUS ArrayAnalyzer2.1 is an S-PLUS module that is a GUI-driven tool for microarray data analysis. It provides us with a collection of powerful methods for analyzing Affymetrix MAS 5, CHP, and CEL data and two-channel microarray data.

In this tutorial, I will demonstrate how to use its GUI to import data and to initiate a statistical analysis through the menu (or the command line).

Prerequisites: Basic microarray concepts
