BioconductorBuntu is a custom distribution of Ubuntu Linux that automatically installs a server-side microarray processing environment, and provides a user friendly web-based graphical user interface to many of the tools developed by the Bioconductor Project, whether locally or across a network. Installation is a turn-key procedure, simply based on booting off the installation CD or image file. In its current version, several microarrays analysis pipelines are supported including oligonucleotide (e.g. Affymetrix Genechips), dual or single dye (e.g. Exqion miRNA arrays) experiments, with the existing set of preprocessing methods for normalization, background correction and so on are easily expanded.
