New gene page, new Bgee interface

Yesterday we have released a major update of our web interface: The download functionality remains the same, as does the data (processing for the next release is just starting with the new Ensembl release – we love Ensembl). It’s just easier … Continue reading

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

When fold-enrichment is more informative than p-values: #TopAnat analysis of autism genes from GWAS

In a recent post on this blog we saw how to analyze results from a breast cancer GWAS. In that case, we did not have very strong expectations of tissue-specificity for the genes; it was more of an exploratory analysis. … 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
