GATExplorer citations


Mining, Validation, and Clinical Significance of Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Associated lncRNAs

PLoS One
PMCID: 5082825
PMID: 27788162
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0164590

[…] rous and paracancerous samples per group. IQRray_score [] and presence/absence call [] were used to ensure the overall quality of microarray data and exclude any abnormal specimens. A platform called GATExplorer [] was used to analyze microarray data at the nucleotide level in a genomic context and distinguish lncRNA candidates.The standards for lncRNAs in GATExplorer were:(i) there was experiment […]


A robust estimation of exon expression to identify alternative spliced genes applied to human tissues and cancer samples

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4298068
PMID: 25297679
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-15-879

[…] ping of all probes to the currently known expressed biological entities, i.e. to the known human protein-coding gene loci and to each specific exon defined on the loci (taking the mapping provided by GATExplorer) []. Exon junction probes are not considered in this study for two reasons: (i) the generation of exon arrays that we are analyzing are no designed to have exon-exon junction probes becaus […]


A four long non coding RNA signature in predicting breast cancer survival

PMCID: 4198622
PMID: 25288503
DOI: 10.1186/s13046-014-0084-7

[…] The raw CEL files were downloaded from GEO database and background adjusted using Robust Multichip Average. GATExplorer [] was used to process microarrays on a local computer for gene expressions of lncRNAs. This GATExplorer provides a series of R packages, designed to be used with BioConductor tools, that […]


Transcriptome meta analysis reveals a central role for sex steroids in the degeneration of hippocampal neurons in Alzheimer’s disease

BMC Syst Biol
PMCID: 3702487
PMID: 23803348
DOI: 10.1186/1752-0509-7-51

[…] open source Bioconductor bioinformatics software, In the uploading process CDF files were associated with the microarrays through the GeneMapper package. Downloaded from GATExplorer [-] GeneMapper ( includes the sets of unambiguous probes that map to each specific Ensemble Gene ID (ENSG ID). Also through affy packa […]


Molecular Characterization of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Patients with a High Number of Losses in 13q14

PLoS One
PMCID: 3496725
PMID: 23152777
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0048485

[…] on . The absolute expression signal for each gene was calculated for each microarray. For the expression signal calculation of the Human Exon arrays we used a new CDF package, called GeneMapper (from GATExplorer) , instead of the Affymetrix original probe-set definition. This mapping represents an improvement thanks to the reannotation of updated Ensembl gene loci and removal of cross-hybridizatio […]


Gene expression profiling of peripheral blood mononuclear cells in the setting of peripheral arterial disease

J Clin Bioinforma
PMCID: 3381689
PMID: 22409835
DOI: 10.1186/2043-9113-2-6

[…] 05; ) (Table ). A subset of probes was not annotated in Affymetrix annotation files. We obtained enhanced probe mapping by combining results from multiple probe mapping tools AILUN [], BioMart [] and GATExplorer []. Final probe mapping was performed using the union of mapped results obtained from these methods. NCBI-Gene and UCSC genome browser [] were also consulted for annotation and integration […]
