About affylmGUI

affylmGUI is a Graphical User Interface for analysis of Affymetrix microarray data, using the limma package (Linear Models for MicroArray data). limma and affylmGUI are both R packages. The limma package offers R users a command-line interface to state-of-the-art techniques for linear modeling of microarray data and for identifying differentially expressed genes. The affylmGUI package, while not as powerful as limma to the expert user, offers a simple point-and-click interface to many of the commonly-used limma and affy functions. To use the affylmGUI package, you need to have R 1.9.0 or later, Tcl/Tk 8.3 or later (ActiveTcl for Windows, Tcl/Tk Source for Linux/Unix, or X11 Tcl/Tk for MacOSX) and the limma, affylmGUI, and tkrplot R packages. The affyPLM (Bioconductor), gcrma (Bioconductor), R2HTML (CRAN) and xtable (CRAN) packages are recommended.

affylmGUI has been succesfully tested on Windows 2000, Windows XP, RedHat/Fedora Linux, and on Mac OSX with X11.
