Microarray experiments generate data sets with information on the expression levels of thousands of genes in a set of biological samples. Unfortunately, such experiments often produce multiple missing expression values, normally due to various experimental problems. As many algorithms for gene expression analysis require a complete data matrix as input, the(More)
J-Express is a Java application that allows the user to analyze gene expression (microarray) data in a flexible way giving access to multidimensional scaling, clustering, and visualization methods in an integrated manner. Specifically, J-Express includes implementations of hierarchical clustering, k-means, principal component analysis, and self-organizing(More)
Ovarian tumors range from benign to aggressive malignant tumors, including an intermediate class referred to as borderline carcinoma. The prognosis of the disease is strongly dependent on tumor classification, where patients with borderline tumors have much better prognosis than patients with carcinomas. We here describe the use of hierarchical clustering(More)
Retinoids triggers differentiation of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) blasts by transcriptional regulation of myeloid regulatory genes. Using a microarray approach, we have identified a novel retinoid-responsive gene (CXXC5) encoding a nuclear factor, retinoid-inducible nuclear factor (RINF), that contains a CXXC-type zinc-finger motif. RINF expression(More)
Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is one of the major health problems in Sri Lanka and the disease is associated with the habit of Betel Quid (BQ) chewing. Using 35k oligo microarrays, we analyzed the gene expression profile of 15 Sri Lankan patients diagnosed with OSCCs and pair-wised normal controls and correlated the findings with the(More)
The J-Express package has been designed to facilitate the analysis of microarray data with an emphasis on efficiency, usability, and comprehensibility. The J-Express system provides a powerful and integrated platform for the analysis of microarray gene expression data. It is platform-independent in that it requires only the availability of a Java virtual(More)
Lepeophtheirus salmonis is an ectoparasitic copepod feeding on skin, mucus and blood from salmonid hosts. Initial analysis of EST sequences from pre adult and adult stages of L. salmonis revealed a large proportion of novel transcripts. In order to link unknown transcripts to biological functions we have combined EST sequencing and microarray analysis to(More)
Functional involvement of RINF, Retinoid-Inducible Nuclear Factor (CXXC5), in normal and tumoral human myelopoiesis Short title: RINF expression is required for myelopoiesis Frédéric Pendino, Eric Nguyen, Inge Jonassen, Bjarte Dysvik, Abdulkader Azouz, Michel Lanotte, Evelyne Ségal-Bendirdjian, and Johan R. Lillehaug. Department of Molecular Biology,(More)
PURPOSE To explore possible range of gene expression profiles in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) and pairwised normal controls from Sudanese (n = 72) and Norwegian (n = 45) patients using a 15K cDNA microarray and to correlate the findings with clinicopathologic variables. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Samples from Sudan were grouped according to(More)
