Gene expression enrichment tests are sensitive enough to detect where your background data came from #TopAnat

When you invent such a cool toy as TopAnat, you play with it. And then sometimes, you’re afraid that you might have broken it. But then, maybe it’s more robust than you expected. This is such a story. One lab … Continue reading

The contribution of #RNAseq, #microarrays, in situ hybridization and ESTs to #TopAnat gene enrichment signal

In Bgee, we integrate gene expression data from RNA-seq, Affymetrix microarrays, ESTs and in situ hybridization data. It is natural to think that with RNA-seq being so powerful, we should not bother with other sources of information. Yet we still have … Continue reading

Expressed, or not expressed? That is the question!

Bgee provides information about where and when genes are expressed in different species. But what does it mean “to be expressed”? That’s a fundamental question we had to answer before we could introduce RNA-Seq data into the database. Expression does … Continue reading
