Hello! We have developed, and continue to develop Chipster, a graphical user interphase build on top of R and Bioconductor. It is currently steered mostly towards DNA microarray data analysis, but it can be easily extended with any R function, Java code or command line tool. Chipster is a client-server system, and it requires a *NIX backend for server components, but the client is platform independent. It is also possible to set up a stand-alone version of Chipster on a Linux machine. As such, it might be a little heavy-weight for your purpose. Currently we have made binaries available in SourceForge, but we are planning on releasing the sources also, since the system is open source. Please see http://chipster.csc.fi/ for more information. If you'd like to get a test license, you can contact us on chipster at csc.fi.
