  • Free bioinformatics resource for DNA microarray and systems biology
  • Manage, analyze, and interpret omics data within a single package
  • Used by the FDA for the review of genomic data submissions
  • ArrayTrack™ has averaged approximately 5000 user entries each year since 2003 when it was opened to the public
  • Survey Of Microarray Databases

In September 2006, an ArrayTrack™ poster was featured on the inside front cover of Nature Biotechnologydisclaimer icon—a special issue focused on the Microarray Quality Control (MAQC) project.

ArrayTrack™ provides an integrated solution for managing, analyzing, and interpreting microarray gene expression data. Specifically, ArrayTrack™ is MIAME (Minimum Information About A Microarray Experiment)-supportive for storing both microarray data and experiment parameters associated with a pharmacogenomics or toxicogenomics study. Many statistical and visualization tools are available with ArrayTrack™ which provides a rich collection of functional information about genes, proteins, and pathways for biological interpretation. 

The primary emphasis of ArrayTrack™ is the direct linking of analysis results with functional information to facilitate the interaction between the choice of analysis methods and the biological relevance of analysis results. Using ArrayTrack™, users can easily select a statistical method applied to stored microarray data to determine a list of differentially expressed genes. The gene list can then be directly linked to pathways and gene ontology for functional analysis.
