BASE is a comprehensive database server to manage the massive amounts of
data generated by microarray analysis. In short, it manages biomaterial
information, raw data and images, and provides integrated and
plug-in-able normalization, data viewing and analysis tools.
Additionally, for labs that make their own in-house arrays or for
labs that wish to track probe information, the system also has array
production LIMS features which can be integrated with the data
analysis. The organization and interface of BASE was designed to closely
follow the natural work-flow of the microarray biologist, and is compatible
with most types of array platforms and datatypes (e.g. cDNA/oligos spotted
on any substrate, Affymetrix, CGH on arrays, etc).
