Platform
For gene expression profile analysis, "platform" represents a medium and/or a measurement instrument. There are many types of platform, such as oligonucleotide microarray, oligonucleotide bead, cDNA microarray, restricted enzyme in SAGE. We use GEO's accession number of the platform (GPL#####) and ArrayExpress's one (A-###-###).

For example, GPL96 is the platform titled "Affymetrix GeneChip Human Genome U133 Array Set HG-U133A". It's detail is below.

DescriptionThe set includes over 1,000,000 unique oligonucleotide features covering more than 39,000 transcript variants, which in turn represent greater than 33,000 of the best characterized human genes. Sequences were selected from GenBank, dbEST, and RefSeq. Sequence clusters were created from Build 133 of UniGene (April 20, 2001) and refined by analysis and comparison with a number of other publicly available databases including the Washington University EST trace repository and the University of California, Santa Cruz golden-path human genome database (April 2001 release). In addition, ESTs were analyzed for untrimmed low-quality sequence information, correct orientation, false priming, false clustering, alternative splicing and alternative polyadenylation.
