## Summary

=20

Tigr MultiExperiment Viewer is a freely available tool for analyzing nor=
malized microarray data. It can be used to perform statistical analysis, cl=
ustering, classification and visualization of the data.

=20

## Available on

=20

MeV can be downloaded at http://www.tm4.org/mev.html

=20

## User documentation

=20

To get started using MeV, download t=
he MeV quickstart manual.

A more detailed description of all functi=
onalities can be found at the MeV manual<=
br> Training slides provided by MeV can be found here

## Loading data into MeV

=20

Data in the following formats can be loaded into MeV:

=20

=20
- .mev files- MeV expression files
=20
- .tav files- TIGR Array Viewer format
=20
- TDMS files - Tab delimited file containaing spot annotation in the left=
hand columns and expression values for each sample as right hand columns. =
When loading, user needs to specify where the first expression column begin=
s.
=20
- .gpr file - GenePix file
=20
- Affymetrix file format
=20

=20

=20

After data is loaded into MeV, it can be adjusted by using the options u=
nder the *Adjust Data* Adjustments such as mean centering, median ce=
ntering and log transformations can be done. The data can also be filtered =
based on quality and variance.

=20

Remember that the expression image may look very different after a data =
adjustment such as log transformation is done. You may need to change the c=
olor scale limits (under *Display* menu) according to the limit=
s of your adjusted data to see an accurate expression image.

## Statistical tests

=20

The following statistical tests can be performed on the data using MeV:<=
/p>=20

=20
- Anova
=20
- Two-factor Anova
=20
- T-test
=20
- Multiple testing corrections- Bonferroni, adjusted Bonferroni. Bonferro=
ni correction is a very stringent correction while adjusted Bonferrroni is =
a more lenient correction.
