Summary: Several programs are now available for analyzing the large datasets arising from cDNA microarray experiments. Most programs are expensive commercial packages or require expensive third party software. Some are freely available to academic researchers, but are limited to one operating system. MicroArray Genome Imaging and Clustering Tool (MAGIC Tool) is an open source program that works on all major platforms, and takes users 'from tiff to gif'. Several unique features of MAGIC Tool are particularly useful for research and teaching.
