GeneXplorer is a web application that allows clustered microarray
data to be browsed interactively via the web, and can be used either
for research purposes, or for providing web supplements to accompany
microarray publication.

Demo & Screenshots

GeneXplorer has been used to provide several web supplements for
papers arising from data in the Stanford Microarray Database. As an
example, see:

J Lapointe, C Li, JP Higgins, M van de Rijn, E Bair, K Montgomery, M Ferrari, L Egevad, W Rayford, U Bergerheim, et al: Gene expression profiling identifies clinically relevant subtypes of prostate cancer. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2004, 101:811-6.


GeneXplorer is written in Perl, and thus requires a system that is
capable of running Perl.
GeneXplorer also requires the following modules:

  1. GD
  2. Getopt::Long

In addition, GeneXplorer requires the C-program, correlations, which
is included in the distribution. This must be compiled with an ANSI
compatible compiler, such as gcc.

The Clustered datafiles must be created using a clustering program
that produces files in the cdt format.
Such software includes Mike Eisen's Cluster, or XCluster.
