DNA Microarray Platform for Detection and Surveillance of Viruses Transmitted by Small Mammals and Arthropods

PLoS Negl Trop Dis
PMCID: 5031435
PMID: 27654806
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0005017

[…] ftware (Molecular Devices, USA). We developed a SMAvirusChip Analysis Form (RAF) using Microsoft Excel software for data processing and analysis. The RAF contains an algorithm similar to that used by DetectiV software []. All the raw data were normalized against the negative control probes, which were randomly distributed in 78 spots on each sub-array. To accomplish this, the fluorescence intensit […]


Microarrays for Pathogen Detection and Analysis

Brief Funct Genomics
PMCID: 3245552
PMID: 21930658
DOI: 10.1093/bfgp/elr027

[…] DetectiV [] is a software package, written in the R language [], which provides simple visualization, normalization and significance testing functions for detection array data. Unlike most of the meth […]


VIPR: A probabilistic algorithm for analysis of microbial detection microarrays

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2921407
PMID: 20646301
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-11-384

[…] Three algorithms, E-Predict, DetectiV and PhyloDetect, were available for comparison to VIPR. E-Predict [] was used to calculate Uncentered Pearson correlations. A custom E-matrix for the HF dataset was prepared as described by U […]


Nonparametric methods for the analysis of single color pathogen microarrays

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2909221
PMID: 20584331
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-11-354

[…] the ViroChip platform does include the use of reverse complement probes and employs a random-PCR based nucleic acid amplification strategy that is similar to ours.Two other methods (E-Predict [] and DetectiV []) reported a high degree of predictive accuracy when they were used to examine the same dataset. Similarly, we report having achieved a high degree of accuracy when using two nonparametric […]
