Dancer 1.1.1 – Digital Anatomical Reconstruction of Gene Expression data

Dancer 1.1.1


DANCER (Digital Anatomy Constructor) is a program that can be used to reconstruct anatomical pictures. In general, it fills color into drawn shapes that collectively form a picture that represents the data. The main data source of this program is microarray data, but in situ hybridization-, Northern Blot-, Southern Blot- or any other data can be used. As a result, a picture (for example, a brain section from mouse) is produced where the shapes (for example, brain regions like the hypothalamus) are filled with color that corresponds to the gene expression level.
