Premier Biosoft International
last week launched TMA Foresight
, a statistical tool for tissue microarray data analysis designed for pathologists, clinicians, and researchers.
According to Premier Biosoft, TMA Foresight can be used for applications such as simple descriptive statistics that include mean, sum, and variance, as well as more advanced data correlation such as hierarchical clustering and Kaplan Meier plots, which can be used for prognostic marker identification.
Scientists from the Broad Institute have released Gene Set Enrichment Analysis 2.0, an enhanced version of the Broad’s previously released gene expression-analysis tool that uses a multi-gene approach to extract information from microarray data.
According to the Broad, the GSEA software now includes more than 1,000 additional gene sets as well as a gene set browser, which can pinpoint specific gene sets based on a particular gene or other parameter of interest. GSEA 2.0 also enables users to graphically analyze leading-edge, high-scoring gene sets.
