In-house software

ROTS R-package implements the reproducibility-optimized test statistic (ROTS) for ranking genes or proteins in terms of differential expression in two-group comparisons.

DCeN R-package implements the Dynamically Co-expressed Neighborhoods (DCeN) for ranking genes in genome-wide time-resolved gene expression profiling studies.

GeneFuncster is an easy-to-use web tool for for functional enrichment analysis for short filtered and long non-filtered gene lists. It is available for several organisms and able to provide versatile result visualization for Gene Ontology, KEGG and Reactome databases.

GWES is a web-based application that runs epistasis analysis on a powerful computer cluster.

BiclusterMiner implements an efficient biclustering approach enabling the complete identification of all biclusters while keeping the computational demands minimal and running times reasonable.

BiForce / BiForce Toolbox supports high-throughput analysis of epistasis in GWAS for either binary or quantitative traits.

PECA allows improved differential expression analysis for Affymetrix microarrays and proteomics studies and is based on Probe/peptide-level Expression Change Averages

PASI Pathway Analysis for Sample-level Information

Phosphonormalizer  uses the overlap between enriched and non-enriched datasets to compensate for the bias introduced in global phosphorylation after applying median normalization.


Bioinformatics Unit currently hosts licenses for the following software:
