Summary: The establishment and rapid expansion of microarray databases has created a need for new search tools. Here we present CellMontage, the first server for expression profile similarity search over a large database - 69 000 microarray experiments derived from NCBI's GEO site. CellMontage provides a novel, content-based search engine for accessing gene expression data. Microarray experiments with similar overall expression to a user-provided expression profile (e.g. microarray experiment) are computed and displayed - usually within 20 s. The core search engine software is downloadable from the site.
