Learn to use the GenMAPP resource, a freely available open source software application for visualizing microarray data in the context of biological pathways. Learning to use this application will provide the researcher with an easy to use tool for viewing expression data within a biological pathway. The example data set used in the exercises can be downloaded and saved here.

Pathways and Interactions : Tools that are involved with protein interactions and pathway features. Some tools are primarily repositories and some offer analysis options.


Open source molecular modeling--finally?: My Bio SmartBrief newsletter today had a reference to a paper in a rather...um...obscure journal. Maybe it is just something I have missed over the years, but the Journal of the Royal Society Interface...
