Mayday is a workbench for visualization, analysis and storage of microarray data. It features a graphical user interface and supports the development and integration of existing and new analysis methods. Besides the infrastructural core functionality, Mayday offers a variety of plug-ins, such as various interactive viewers, a connection to the R statistical environment, a connection to SQL-based databases and different data mining methods, including WEKA-library based methods for classification and various clustering methods. In addition, so-called meta information objects are provided for annotation of the microarray data allowing integration of data from different sources, which is a feature that, for instance, is employed in the enhanced heatmap visualization.


The software and more detailed information including screenshots and a user guide as well as test data can be found on the Mayday home page The core is published under the GPL (GNU Public License) and the associated plug-ins under the LGPL (Lesser GNU Public License).
