UCLA Neuro-Oncology & SiliconMED Launch Online Tool Correlating Gene Expression Levels with Overall Survival of Brain Cancer Patients

Genomic analysis is a powerful new tool permitting unprecedented insights into how brain tumors form and has been enabled primarily through microarray technology. ProbeSetAnalyzer.com, a new web based tool, is aiming to help clinicians and researchers take the massive amount of data created by microarrays and better visualize gene expression levels and how they relate to the overall survival of brain cancer patients.
