Analysis of Microarray Data
A microarray experiment consists of a number of distinct stages that need careful planning including:
- experimental design
- choice of array
- sources of the RNA
- the number and type of replications used.
A well designed microarray experiment will generate large amounts of data and reliable bioinformatics resources are essential for realising the huge potential of microarrays.
The Adelaide Microarray Centre currently uses Partek Genomics Suite for the preliminary analysis of Affymetrix microarray data where customers do not have their own analysis resources.
