Oncomine Database Data Pipeline Includes studies from published literature and other databases.other databases. Screens microarray data only to include those studies that meet the oncomine standards (clinically important).

1. Clicking on the author gives a description of the study analyzed and a copy of the paper 2. A thesaurus is attached to many of the words, which creates a standard language for all users. 1 2
Oncomine Database Automated Data Analysis Performs logical differential expression analyses, cluster analyses, and concept analyses. Permits the use of other hypothesis not explored in the paper Sample Facts Standardization Standardizes and curates sample information
Heat Map Simple Analysis of Data To perform a simple analysis on the data in the published work simply click on the highlighted regions. Gene List Box plot of gene
Advanced Analysis Advance Analysis By clicking on the highlighted icon, advanced analysis (AA) of the data can be computed. This encompasses all of the analysis modules.analysis modules
AA: Differential Expression Clicking on any gene will give the Gene Annotation Box plots of each gene are available by clicking on the icon.
Enrichment This module provides links to the databases in the data warehouse. Below is a list of some of the advanced analysis it provides: GO Cellular Component- Gene Ontology Database (gene product descriptions) KEGG Pathway- KEGG (gene-gene interaction) Literature-define Concepts- Pubmed Interpro- Interpro (protein database) Chromosome Subregion- NCBI Mapview (organism genome search) Oncomine Gene Expression Signatures- Oncomine (where gene is found in other publications) Chromosome Arm- NCBI Mapview (organism genome search) Conserver Promoter Motif- Pubmed (publications where motif can be found) picTar predicted miRNA target genes – picTar (miRNA constructs)
Interaction Networks Clicking on this button provides a gene interaction pathway, which includes the genes listed.
Co-Expression Co expression plots of the two genes are also available.
Meta Analysis Meta analysis between different experiments allows for validation and assessment of accurate results. It only compares the statistical measurements because preparation methods are different between experiments. It also attempts to eliminate artifacts and cross hybridization. 1 At the first results page click the experiments to be compared.

Using Oncomine AdvantagesDisadvantages Web based program Meta analysis between different experiments Easy to use interface across the spectrum of researchers Bridges the gap between clinicians (can use when tumor samples are low due to wide variety of samples on the database). High level analysis All analyzed data standardized Co-Expression Analysis Identifies genes that are similarly expressed across several tissue samples within various experiments Only includes cancer specific data Must go through external sites for raw data therefore raw data is not in a standardized format. Need login access (free for academic not free for civilians) The link to the databases does not take you directly to the page for the specific gene. The user must search the database themselves.
Help is no problem At the upper right of each module is a ‘question mark.’ This will take you to a help page for the module.
