Due to the ongoing effort required in maintaining and updating gene annotation databases, we have had to end support for the GeneCruiser module. This means GeneCruiser will no longer be installed on any of our servers and will no longer be available from any of our repositories.
We are looking into alternatives for microarray annotation and will be sure to keep you posted as a new option becomes available.
Please note that this also means that the GeneCruiser functionality in the Java Applet versions of ComparativeMarkerSelectionViewer, FeatureSummaryViewer, GeneListSignificanceViewer, HeatMapViewer, HierarchicalClusteringViewer, and Multiplot* is also no longer operational.
If you need to convert Affymetrix probes to their corresponding genes, we recommend CollapseDataset. This module will combine all of the probe sets for a single gene into one representative value, "collapsing" Affymetrix probe sents into their corresponding HUGO gene annotations....

Recent updates to Firefox may result in older GenePattern Java applet visualizer failing to launch.
A work around, posted on Java.com, can be found below. (additional work arounds are also available on this page)
(Note that while the webpage indicates Firefox 42 & Windows 8, this resolved my issue in Firefox 38 on Windows 7)
