ABSTRACT

Background: Microarrays are becoming a very popular tool for microbial detection and diagnostics. Although these diagnostic arrays are much simpler when compared to the traditional transcriptome arrays, due to the high throughput nature of the arrays, the data analysis requirements still form a bottle neck for the widespread use of these diagnostic arrays. Hence we developed a new online data sharing and analysis environment customised for diagnostic arrays.

Methods: Microbial Diagnostic Array Workstation (MDAW) is a database driven application designed in MS Access and front end designed in ASP.NET.

Conclusion: MDAW is a new resource that is customised for the data analysis requirements for microbial diagnostic arrays.

No MeSH data available.


Database schema implemented in MDAW. User management, data storage and analysis is distributed as 11 tables. For a local implementation of the database these tables can created with the standard MS Access table and query wizards.

Figure 1: Database schema implemented in MDAW. User management, data storage and analysis is distributed as 11 tables. For a local implementation of the database these tables can created with the standard MS Access table and query wizards.

Mentions: MDAW is a database driven application with the back end designed in Microsoft Access. The data parsing and analysis scripts are written in ASP.NET. The web interface is developed in ASP.NET and runs on an Apache web server and can be freely accessed the domain . The default input data format is gene pix pro (gpr). If the data is in any other format then it needs to be converted to tab delimited text (.txt) before uploading. The annotation file which is optional need to be in comma separated value (cvs) format. Figure. 1 explains further details of the implementation.
