MADMAX: Advanced analysis, easy to use
21 Oct 2011
The MADMAX database is specifically designed to store, manage and analyse data from a variety of ~omics sources. To demonstrate the features and powers of MADMAX, Ke Lin of Wageningen University and colleagues performed a pilot study using different types of ~omics data from Brassica rapa. Their findings were published in the Journal of Integrative Bioinformatics on July 21, 2011.
A major feature of MADMAX is its ease of use; no programming is required to employ the system. The advanced analysis pipelines incorporated in MADMAX are based on R/Bioconductor and thus offer state-of-the-art analysis methods for multiple microarray platforms. MADMAX has already been widely used by scientists around the world. "The user-friendliness is a recurring element in the user feedback", says Anand Gavai, bioinformatician in the group of NBIC Faculty member Jack Leunissen at Wageningen University and co-author of the JIB paper. "Users particularly appreciate the fact that advanced analyses and statistics are supplied simply at the click of a button."
