GOrilla – Gene Ontology enRIchment anaLysis and visuaLizAtion tool

GOrilla

:: DESCRIPTION

GOrilla is a web-based application that identifies enriched GO terms in ranked lists of genes, without requiring the user to provide explicit target and background sets. This is particularly useful in many typical cases where genomic data may be naturally represented as a ranked list of genes (e.g. by level of expression or of differential expression).

PIVOT 2.0 – Protein Interactions VisualizatiOn Tool

PIVOT 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

PIVOT (Protein Interactions VisualizatiOn Tool) is a Java-based tool, for visualizing protein-protein interactions. It is rich in features that help the users navigate and interpret the interactions map, as well as graph-theory algorithms for easily connecting remote proteins to the displayed map.PIVOT is not limited to the data present in any database, but instead allows the users to create their own dataset, by importing any available lists of interactions and combining them together. PIVOT is currently configured to work with proteins from four different species (human, yeast, drosophila and mouse), and present functional annotations, designations of homologs from the four species, and links to information pages. The protein data is stored in an MS-Access file, easily modifiable by the users to enter their own data.

SinicView 1.0.3 – Large-scale Alignment Visualization Tool

SinicView 1.0.3

:: DESCRIPTION

SinicView, (for Sequence-aligning INnovative and Interactive Comparison VIEWer), allows the user to efficiently compare and evaluate assorted nucleotide alignment results obtained by different tools. SinicView calculates similarity of the alignment outputs under a fixed window using the sum-of-pairs method and provides scoring profiles of each set of aligned sequences. The user can visually compare alignment results either in graphic scoring profiles or in plain text format of the aligned nucleotides along with the annotations information. We illustrate the capabilities of our visualization system by comparing alignment results obtained by MLAGAN, MAVID, and MULTIZ, respectively.

DROMPA 2.6.4 – Peak-calling and Visualization Tool for Multiple ChIP-seq Data

DROMPA 2.6.4

:: DESCRIPTION

DROMPA (DRaw and Observe Multiple enrichment Profiles and Annotation) is cost-effient program for peak-calling and visualization for ChIP-seq analysis. DROMPA outputs the protein binding profile map (ChIP-reads distribution and ChIP/control enrichment profile) with genomic annotation specified in pdf or png format, which can be easily handled and processed by users with little bioinformatics background. DROMPA has an associated program named parse2wig, which preprocesses the map file into wig files. This two-step procedure can drastically reduce the computational memory and time required, which makes enable to analyze large-scale ChIP-seq data (e.g., more than 10 human samples and/or multiple executions for each sample with trial-and-error) on a conventional desktop computer.

HaploGeneMapper 1.0 – Genomic Proximity of Haplo Insufficient Genes Visualization tool

HaploGeneMapper 1.0

:: DESCRIPTION

HaploGeneMapper is a tool to visualise the genomic proximity of haploinsufficient genes to segmental duplications on a chromosome-by-chromosome basis. Corresponding pairs of segmental duplications, which may be subject to non-allelic homologous recombination, can be highlighted using the cursor. Similarly, the names of haploinsufficient genes and segmental duplications can be displayed by hovering the cursor over them.
