Yale University Licenses Biotique's Array Analysis Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Yale University has licensed Biotique Systems' XRAY gene expression analysis system, Biotique said today.
 
Researchers at Yale's W.M. Keck Foundation Biotechnology Resource Laboratory will use the software to analyze data from Affymetrix microarrays.
 
XRAY, short for “Excel Array Analysis,” is an “add-in” for Microsoft’s Excel spreadsheet software that normalizes and analyzes large sets of Affymetrix arrays.
 
Biotique said that the software can be used to analyze differential gene expression and alternative splicing with exon and gene arrays; to identify potential binding regions with Affymetrix tiling arrays; and to perform normalization and analysis on large probe sets and arrays.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
