Title: Querying Microarray Databases
Author: Raja, Zoe Alexandra
Abstract: Microarray technology has rapidly taken a key position among bioinformatics research tools . After the completion of the Human Genome Project , microarray databases have become particularly important to the management and analysis of genomic data . These databases are ideal tools for many research areas involving gene expression patterns under different experimental conditions . This work attempts to assess the querying capabilities of current public microarray database implementations by evaluating their data management , query interfaces , and results presentation . We are not aware of any comparative study available to date that evaluates this important class of biological databases . We examine and evaluate how several of the current existing implementations handle microarray data so that they can be queried and managed in a useful , understandable , and efficient manner . Our study identifies some of the limitations among existing microarray databases that impact querying and results presentation , leading to suggestions for areas of improvement .
