Abstract

The Keck Microarray Database (KMD) is a port of the ArrayExpress database from Oracle® to the MySQL® environment. The requirements for a locally available, open-source microarray database solution based on ArrayExpress are analysed in this article. The differences between the Oracle® and MySQL® environments are identified and the method to port to MySQL® is described, providing a unified relational database management system (RDBMS) platform for both MIAMExpress and ArrayExpress.AvailabilityThe software and documentation are available from the Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences website at http://public.kgi.edu/~jmainguy/applied-bioinformatics.htmContactJean-Pierre Mainguy (jmainguy@kgi.edu) or David Wild (david_wild@kgi.edu)
