End of support for GeneCruiser

Posted on Tuesday, March 15, 2016 at 05:23PM by Barbara Hill Meyers

Due to the ongoing effort required in maintaining and updating gene annotation databases, we have had to end support for the GeneCruiser module. This means GeneCruiser will no longer be installed on any of our servers and will no longer be available from any of our repositories.

We are looking into alternatives for microarray annotation and will be sure to keep you posted as a new option becomes available.

Please note that this also means that the GeneCruiser functionality in the Java Applet versions of ComparativeMarkerSelectionViewer, FeatureSummaryViewer, GeneListSignificanceViewer, HeatMapViewer, HierarchicalClusteringViewer, and Multiplot* is also no longer operational. 

If you need to convert Affymetrix probes to their corresponding genes, we recommend CollapseDataset. This module will combine all of the probe sets for a single gene into one representative value, "collapsing" Affymetrix probe sents into their corresponding HUGO gene annotations. Please see the documentation for more information.

For annotation solutions currently outside of GenePattern, we can suggest myGene.info and DAVID. Please see their websites for more information.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

*Mulitplot was deprecated and replaced with MultiPlotStudio in April of 2014. It is now only maintained for purposes of reproducible research.
