arrayMap feature update(s)

Over the last weeks, we have introduced a number of new search/ordering features to arrayMap. Some of those mimic functions previously implemented in Progenetix. Overall, the highlights are:

ICD entity aggregation
all ICD-O entities with their according samples
ICD locus aggregation
all tumor loci with their according samples
Clinical group aggregation
clinical super-entities (e.g. "breast ca.": all carcinoma types with locus breast) with their samples
Publication aggregation
all publication with samples in arrayMap

In contrast to Progenetix, we do not offer precomputed SCNA histograms. However, users can generate them on the fly, but should consider the specific challenges in doing so (e.g. noise background in frequency calculations).
