Dear colleagues, We would like to introduce a new tool called “CU-DREAM” for intersecting two microarray datasets. CU-DREAM compares the datasets of two microarray experiments (reported in http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/geo) with different conditions to determine if the two conditions share genome wide...
