BABELOMICS -- advanced functional profiling of transcriptomics, proteomics and genomics experiments

What you can do:
Suite of web tools for the functional profiling of genome scale experiments.
Highlights:
  • Babelomics includes different flavors of conventional functional enrichment methods as well as more advanced gene set analysis methods that makes it a unique tool among the similar resources available.
  • In addition to the well-known functional definitions (GO, KEGG), Babelomics includes new ones such as Biocarta pathways or text mining-derived functional terms.
  • Regulatory modules implemented include transcriptional control (Transfac, CisRed) and other levels of regulation such as miRNA-mediated interference.
  • Moreover, Babelomics allows for sub-selection of terms in order to test more focused hypothesis.
  • Also gene annotation correspondence tables can be imported, which allows testing with user-defined functional modules.
  • Finally, a tool for the 'de novo' functional annotation of sequences has been included in the system. This allows using yet unannotated organisms in the program.
  • Babelomics has been extensively re-engineered and now it includes the use of web services and Web 2.0 technology features, a new user interface with persistent sessions and a new extended database of gene identifiers.
