Affymetrix has posted an online slide demonstration of its Data Mining Tool (DMT), at its website, www.affymetrix.com. The demonstration offers a clear and thorough explanation of the DMT, which can also serve as a basic tutorial for someone who is new to microarray experiment design and data analysis techniques. First, the demonstration outlines the features of the DMT, which include gene clustering and profiling, self-organizing maps; correlation coefficient algorithms, replicate sample analysis; virtual array analysis; and a matrix analysis tool. Next, the demonstration takes the user through steps of an array experiment, from experimental design to basic data storage to data analysis such as t-tests and self-organizing maps.
