ISAAC | InterSpecies Analysing Application using Containers


Enables non-computer trained researchers to explore gene lists under different biological aspects. From a user’s point of view, the main difference to other related projects is that the gene lists can be changed interactively at any point of an analysis. The central idea of this web based tool is to enable the analysis of sets of genes, transcripts and proteins under different biological viewpoints and to interactively modify these sets at any point of the analysis. Detailed history and snapshot information allows tracing each action. Furthermore, one can easily switch back to previous states and perform new analyses. Currently, sets can be viewed in the context of genomes, protein functions, protein interactions, pathways, regulation, diseases and drugs. Additionally, users can switch between species with an automatic, orthology based translation of existing gene sets.
