  • Your favorite web-based Gene List Tool?

    The Question is : what are the good WEB tools for telling a story about a list of genes?

    Usually I pop on over to David Genesets: http://david.abcc.ncifcrf.gov/ But it's got the norovirus or some other 48 hour type flu and is not working today.

    Ideally a good web tool is not just a download a perl or java script and does not require registration or "prove you are a human" interface. A good site will have just "paste the genelist in and press go" interface and your get a sorted list with p (or z or whatever) values and links to more info.

    Are there any good "gene list tools" that can identify pathways, common motifs or ontologies that you like and are easy to use???

    I don't have a favourite, but in the last few days I've used:







    and the UCSC table browser.

    Basically I've got about 1200 microarray probesets (about 800 genes) that are attached to some more and some less accurate annotations, and I want to get a unique gene list with accurate mouse gene names and genome coordinates. MGI seems to be the simplest for this task.

      I also usually use DAVID (and IPA, but that's not free), but since for my work I've found the Panther pathways to be the most helpful, I just go directly to the Panther website.

      Here's a new one I've come across that looks to be similar in concept to the other enrichment/pathway tools, but I haven't used it just yet since I got busy with other things.

        The Concept Gen. Looks interesting. I don't quite get why they want people to log in. I don't think a lot of implementers "get" the concept of "frictionless" in web development. It's too bad people hide cool tools behind login walls.

        The panther stuff looks okay. Thanks. Great tables but the Panther Pathways appear to have some very heavy-weight and buggy Java plug-in doing that java "garbage collection" seize-up your machine and have pretty fonts but no actual information type thing going on. It really needs some useability testing. Too bad. Sometimes, I wish people would keep it simple and just give the information in a nice PNG.

        [ edit : I remember checking out Panther way back long time ago and the java plugin stuff was a mess ... so I guess it's still a problem ... maybe they can turn it into HTML5 ]

          Agreed. I'm wondering if since it was developed and hosted at the University of Michigan it's behind a login wall for security/legal reasons?

            Right. It's probably a legal requirement. They probably need some "academic only" type deal for KEGG ( or some other resource) and they need to segment their market.

              The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
              by seqadmin



              Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

              Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
              by seqadmin


              New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

              A major leap in the field has
