The yeast Microarray Global Viewer (yMGV) is an on-line database providing a synthetic view of the transcriptional expression profiles of Saccharomyces cerevisiae genes in most of the published expression datasets. yMGV displays a one-screen graphical representation of gene expression variations for each published genome-wide experiment, allowing quick retrieval of experimental conditions affecting expression of this gene. yMGV also provides tools to isolate groups of genes sharing similar transcription profiles in a defined subset of experiments. Additionally, yMGV furnishes a set of statistical tools for critical assessment of published data. We therefore believe that yMGV is an efficient tool that affords a quick and comprehensive overview of microarray data and generates new gene classifications. As of 20 March 2001 the yMGV database contains 6 000 000 measurements, representing genome-wide expression comparisons of 932 experiments from 39 microarray publications.
