Designed for ease of use, GeneLinker™ features:
Straightforward interface to import spotted microarray, Affymetrix® chip, or similar data including two-color GenePix data;
Tabbed pane navigator that provides hierarchical views of all datasets and experiments (tagged with parameter settings), genes, and gene lists;
Description pane that displays information about the selected dataset, experiment, gene, or gene list;
Relational database (MySQL, DB2 or Oracle) for storage of GeneLinker™ data.
Automatic saving of experiment results.
HTML-based reporting (single experiment or entire workflow);
Advanced image capture.
Designed to help in data exploration, GeneLinker™ features:
