BEST (Bayesian Expression Search Tool) implements a model-based Bayesian querying tool. This program is designed to query large and heterogeneous microarray gene expression database. It is able to identify a small set of genes that share correlated gene expression profiles with the query gene under a subset of samples/experimental conditions. In addition, it allows linearly transformed expression patterns to be recognized and is robust against sporadic outliers in the data.
