GLANET is both a desktop and command line application.
GLANET provides annotation and enrichment analysis for varying length of genomic intervals with respect to a rich annotation library.
GLANET adjusts for genomic biases such as GC content and mappability in its sampling based enrichment analysis which reduces false positives.
GLANET allows user to extend its annotation library with user defimed gene sets and user defined genomic intervals.
GLANET enables Regulatory Sequence Analysis for overlapping SNPs and Transcription Factors pairs when the input consists of SNPs only.
GLANET analyses gene and gene sets not only in exon based but also in intron, proximal and distal region based.
Furthermore, GLANET provides joint Transcription Factor (TF) and KEGG Pathway analyses.
