2006 (English)In: Bioinformatics, ISSN 1367-4803, E-ISSN 1460-2059, Vol. 22, no 20, 2554-2555 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
MASQOT-GUI provides an open-source, platform-independent software pipeline for two-channel microarray spot quality control. This includes gridding, segmentation, quantification, quality assessment and data visualization. It hosts a set of independent applications, with interactions between the tools as well as import and export support for external software. The implementation of automated multivariate quality control assessment, which is a unique feature of MASQOT-GUI, is based on the previously documented and evaluated MASQOT methodology. Further abilities of the application are outlined and illustrated. AVAILABILITY: MASQOT-GUI is Java-based and licensed under the GNU LGPL. Source code and installation files are available for download at http://masqot-gui.sourceforge.net/
