Global Viewer (yMGV) is a data mining tool coupled to a multi-organism database that currently houses Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Schizosaccharomyces pombe expression data.
The philosophy of yMGV is to empower biologists by Since its inception, a major goal of yMGV has been to providing a straightforward data mining interface, and by incorporate data originating from different organisms (9), and generating easily interpretable, mostly graphical, output. This the database schema has been designed to accommodate any tool has matured since its creation in 2001, and is now genome described using GO formalisms (8) (see logical recognized as an exemplary approach to the retrieval and scheme in Supplementary Material). Toward this goal, the interpretation of valuable biological information (1±3).

yMGV allows comparison of gene expression of two organisms (A and B) The user can enter a `seed' gene and choose one of the hand-curated (currently S.cerevisiae and S.pombe only) using an orthology table (C) con- microarray sets (A). yMGV computes the similarity between the expression structed using sequence information. The user can apply ®lters to the tran- pro®le of the seed and those of all other genes in this organism across the scriptome of one or both organisms (D and E) and get the list of microarray set (B). Highly correlated (or anti-correlated) genes are selected orthologous gene pairs that ®t the required expression pro®le and satisfy the (C) and a graphical representation shows their expression across ®lter parameters (F).

The major dif®culty in maintaining a database like yMGV is data retrieval and curation. Thanks to the genomics commu- nity, standardization of microarray data sets (14) has facili- tated the creation of central repositories for microarray data Several years ago, it was shown that the application of various (15,16). We plan to incorporate deposited data sets into yMGV clustering algorithms to large microarray data sets can in order to maximize its utility to the biology community.
Nucleic Acids Research, 2004, Vol. 32, Database issue D325 We also plan to add cis-regulatory elements to the yMGV output. This is essential, as phylogenetic footprinting has 1. Gasch,A.P.
