ready Longhorn Array Database


General Information
The Longhorn Array Database (LAD) is a MIAME‐compliant microarray database that operates on PostgreSQL and Linux. It is a free, completely open‐source, and provides a systematic and proven environment in which vast experiment sets can be safely archived, securely accessed, biologically annotated, quantitatively analyzed, and visually explored. This unit provides the complete set of information needed to successfully deploy, configure, and use LAD for the purposes of two‐color DNA microarray analysis and visualization.
