EMA - A R package for Easy Microarray data analysis.

Abstract : BACKGROUND: The increasing number of methodologies and tools currently available to analyse gene expression microarray data can be confusing for non specialist users. FINDINGS: Based on the experience of biostatisticians of Institut Curie, we propose both a clear analysis strategy and a selection of tools to investigate microarray gene expression data. The most usual and relevant existing R functions were discussed, validated and gathered in an easy-to-use R package (EMA) devoted to gene expression microarray analysis. These functions were improved for ease of use, enhanced visualisation and better interpretation of results. CONCLUSIONS: Strategy and tools proposed in the EMA R package could provide a useful starting point for many microarrays users.
