Welcome to Mayday!
Mayday is a workbench for visualization, analysis and storage of microarray data.
It features a graphical user interface and supports the development and integration of existing and new analysis methods.
Besides the infrastructural core functionality, Mayday offers a variety of plug-ins, such as various interactive viewers, a connection to the R statistical environment, a connection to SQL-based databases, and different clustering methods, including phylogenetic methods.
In addition, so-called meta information objects are provided for annotation of the microarray data allowing integration of data from different sources. This meta information can be used to enhance visualizations, such as in the enhanced heatmap visualization.
Written in the Java programming language, Mayday is extremely portable and runs on all platforms supporting the Java runtime environment 1.6.
The Mayday core is open source software distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License. All Mayday plug-ins are free software distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License.
Mayday is an ongoing project of the Integrative Transcriptomics research group led by Kay Nieselt.
