New software for the visual analysis of genome-wide expression data

Biologists use modern high-density microarrays to measure the genome-wide expression of exons, the essential parts of alternatively spliced genes. In particular, exons of many genes encode protein variants involved with important cellular processes. While the measured differences between the variants are often quite small, their distinct biological effects can be profound. Protein variants from the same gene might even have opposing functional consequences. Therefore, scientists from the Max Planck [...]
