Genevestigator is a high performance search engine for gene expression. It integrates thousands of manually curated public microarray experiments and nicely visualizes gene expression across different biological contexts (diseases, drugs, tissues, etc.).
- Functional genomics: Use Meta-Profile Analysis to compare independent microarray experiments and explore expression patterns of user gene(s) under specific biological conditions
- Biomarker discovery and validation: Identify genes specifically expressed in given test conditions vs. user specified control conditions
- Find Reference genes for qPCR: Ad hoc search of the most stably-expressed genes according to user specified conditions
- Gene modules and network analysis: Use Bi-clustering Analysis to identify co-expressed genes under various experimental conditions
Genevestigator contains manually curated high-quality microarray expression data from a diverse biological context.
- Comprehensive database: Covering 15 organisms (including many plant species) and > 108,000 microarray samples
- Normalized data: Allowing meta-analysis of independent datasets
- Manually-curated ontology: Data are manually curated for anatomy, development, conditions, genotypes, and neoplasm status. Stringent Q/C applied.
