Spotfire DecisionSite for Functional Genomics (referred to here as Spotfire) is a powerful data mining and visualization application with use in many disciplines. This unit provides an overview of Spotfire's utility in analyzing gene expression data obtained from DNA microarray experiments. Analysis of microarray data requires software-based solutions able to handle and manipulate the enormous amount of data generated. Spotfire provides a solution for accessing, analyzing and visualizing data generated from microarray experiments. Spotfire is designed to allow biologists with little or no programming or statistical skills to transform, process, and analyze microarray data.
