The Mammary Genome Anatomy
Program (MGAP) using mouse models has available a of public data
set of 50 samples that may be downloaded and used with MAExplorer or
other types of analysis. The hybridized samples data consists of
tab-delimited files (no images) for about 1700 duplicate
spots/membrane. There is a list of startup .mae
files included in the download.
You may download it several different ways.

Similarly, in the Cvt2Mae program, pressing the "Update Cvt2Mae"
button will repeat the same process except that it does it for the
Cvt2Mae.jar file and creates a backup file called Cvt2Mae.jar.bkup.
Upgrading the MAExplorer or Cvt2Mae JAR program files after the
If you want to upgrade your installation to the latest JAR files,
simply download the JAR files and save them wherever you have
installed the programs replacing the previous jar files.
For example, in a typical Windows OS installation, the
MAExplorer.jar (or Cvt2Mae.jar) is installed in
C:\Program Files\MAExplorer\ (or C:\Program
Files\Cvt2Mae\) folder. Alternatively, you can update the Jar
file when running MAExplorer or Cvt2Mae as described in the next
Updating the MAExplorer or Cvt2Mae JAR files from the running programs
You can use the new "Update MAExplorer" command in the Files menu to
quickly download and install just the JAR file. This first prompt you
to verify that you want to update your program. Then it will (1)
backup the current MAExplorer.jar file as MAExplorer.jar.bkup; (2)
copy the latest MAExplorer.jar file from the
maexplorer.sourceforge.net Web site and replace your MAExplorer.jar
file in your installation directory. Then when you restart
MAExplorer, it will use the new version of the program.
MAEPlugin JAR program files
A Plugins-jar.tar file
is available with all of the released MAEPlugin jar files. Simply
unpack the directory using Unix tar or a Windows unzip program and
copy the .jar files into a directory you can access when running
MAExplorer. To let MAExplorer go directly to these files when you do a
(Plugins | Load plugins) menu command, copy the .jar files into the
Plugins/ directory where you previously installed MAExplorer. For
example, in a typical Windows OS installation, this would be the
C:\Program Files\MAExplorer\Plugins\ folder.
