Greetings,

Most of the analysis tools commonly used for gene expression analysis 
exist in Mathematica. I'd take a look at the resources in 
<<HierarchicalClustering and the hypothesis testing tools. The National 
Cancer Institute has written a comprehensive package in Mathematica 7 
for microarray analysis:

I find it useful to be able to access gene ontology from GenomeData or 
W|A live queries, if your data isn't annotated with GO terms yet.

Mathematica has an Affymetrix microarray importer. You can also import 
Agilent microarray data as a TSV.

Finally, if you want to access R functions (e.g. bioconductor tools) 
from Mathematica, here is a MathGroup post about doing so:

The NETLink docs can be found here in the Documentation Center:
NETLink/tutorial/Overview

And this is the website for ScienceOps application:
http://www.scienceops.com/Rlink2.asp

Hope that helps. I'm happy to answer more specific questions.

Best,
Zach
