The Navigator



The upper left pane of the GeneLinkerô window is called the Experiments, Genes, or Gene Lists navigator depending on which of the tabs is selected. GeneLinkerô displays the Experiments tab by default. All items listed in the navigator have already been saved to the GeneLinkerô database.

Icons Used in the Experiments Navigator


Type of Item

A complete dataset (raw, preprocessed).

An incomplete dataset.

A complete dataset with variable information.

An incomplete dataset with variable information.

F-Test results item.

A hierarchical clustering experiment.

A partitional clustering experiment.

A SOM experiment.

A PCA experiment.

Discretized data.

SLAM results.

Trained ANN classifier.

IBIS search results.

Trained IBIS classifier.

Classification results.

An annotated item (icon to the right of the name).

An experiment item (clustering, SOM, PCA, etc.) is tagged with an icon appropriate to the process that created it.


Default Dataset or Experiment Names

Imported files, see Import for an explanation of where the dataset name comes from.

For all generated datasets or experiments, GeneLinkerô provides a default name. The default name is based on the type of process (and its parameter settings) used to create it.
