Microarray informatics is a rapidly expanding discipline in which large amounts of multi-dimensional data are compressed into small storage units. Data mining of microarrays can be performed using techniques such as drill-down analysis rather than classical data analysis on a record-by-record basis. Both data and metadata can be captured in microarray experiments. The latter may be constructed by obtaining data samples from an experiment. Extractions can be made from these samples and formed into homogeneous arrays that are needed for higher level analysis and mining.
