MEAP (Multiple Exon Array Preprocessing) is an R package that is designed to preprocess, analyze and visualize Affymetrix GeneChip exon array data. MEAP uses a Bayesian model (PM-BayesBG) to estimate sequence-based backgrounds and is able to produce expression data at multi-dimensional scales. Automatically generated web-report for candidate genes facilitate the visualization of alternative splicing events (Example: NEO1 gene).
