PRIMe: Platform for RIKEN Metabolomics
Poster May 22, 2007
We have developed a web-based database, "PRIMe (Platform for RIKEN Metabolomics)," which contains powerful tools for researchers to analyze gene co-expression data and mass spectral data. PRIMe has been developed with the main aim of facilitating integrated analysis for transcriptomics and metabolomics. We have already available are (1) Metabolite Database (KNApSAcK), (2) BL-SOM clustering tool (Batch-Learning Self-Organizing Map), (3) Coexpression Gene Search (coexpression database), and (4) Tree extracting tool.
When there is a need to quickly analyze samples using a number of different PCR assays, it is likely that optimal conditions for each assay will not be the same. First, different assays often will require different annealing temperatures for their primers. In addition, amplicons may be designed to be of different lengths and therefore require varying durations of the extension step.READ MORE
