Bioinformatic tools

A collection of programs and modules developed in this lab by Scott Davis in either R, Java or MATLAB for the analysis of microarray gene expression.
They are all designed to work with the same input file format: a GenePattern Expression Dataset (*.gct). All of these programs can be installed as GenePattern modules, though some of them can also be run as stand-alone Java applications. They include : ExpressCluster, Population PCA, GCT Extractor, ExpressMatrix, δ-Score, ExtractProbes, ClassMeans.

PubMed batch search


retrieves a list of publications within the PubMed database using gene symbols.
