The MSCL Analyst's Toolbox is a set of scripts that provide a wide variety of data transformation,
statistical testing and gene selection capabilities which complement the extensive capabilities of the JMP
statistical discovery software package. Combined with JMP, these scripts provide a powerful, flexible, interactive
and highly economical way to analyze results from small or large microarray studies. Although the scripts are
primarily formatted to analyze Affymetrix data, they can be used with a wide variety of microarray platforms. The
scripts are designed to give users high flexibility in the analysis of their data and can be customized as needed.
The scripts can be used on the PC, Linux or MacIntosh.

CIT course Statistical Analysis of Microarray Analysis using The MSCL Analyst's Toolbox and JMP.
This course, offered twice per year over the past few years teaches students how to use the MSCL Analyst's Toolbox.
The course includes an introduction to the toolbox, an introduction to JMP and a hands-on demo. Newly added to the
course is an introduction to visualization tools in JMP. Please check the course description found on the CIT
website for a detailed description of the course. http://training.cit.nih.gov/
