Expander and Spike


We are pleased to announce a free, hands-on tutorial on two advanced tools for analyzing gene and microRNA expression, cis-regulatory sequences, protein networks, and other high-throughput functional genomics data.

EXPANDER is a “one-stop shop” tool for analyzing microarray data. It lets you fully analyze your gene-expression microarrays within a single tool. It comes with up-to-date data for 15 species, and more can be added as needed. It includes normalization and filtering, clustering and biclustering, and high-level analysis of functional enrichment and cis-regulatory elements. The tool’s integrated analysis capabilities and built-in support for multiple organisms make it unique among the many tools available for microarray data analysis. The latest version (V6) will be presented. The tutorial will show how to use EXPANDER for an end-to-end analysis of microarray data.

SPIKE is a highly curated knowledge-base of human signaling pathways. It provides pathway visualization, allows the user to interactively modify the representation of regulatory interactions, and enables superposition of functional genomic and proteomic data. Its inference engine identifies novel functional interplays between network components. The database is continually updated by community experts. SPIKE’s capabilities within the EXPANDER workflow will be demonstrated.
