A comprehensive web-based tool to access and analyze glia transcriptome data. GOAD has several features: (i) Differential gene Expression (DE) Analysis, (ii) Quantitative gene Expression (QE) analysis, and (iii) a search utility. It contains a collection of previously published and unpublished transcriptome data, including datasets from isolated microglia, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes both at homeostatic and pathological conditions. This database is a unique platform to facilitate integration of bioinformatics in glia biology.
