Bioinformatics Software: BaseSpace Correlation Engine

Main Applications

Featuring the world’s largest collection of curated and pre-analyzed public genomic data, BaseSpace Correlation Engine (previously known as Nextbio) is a web-based discovery platform that provides a practical way for comprehensive genomic data mining.

  • Query with a gene, a phenotype, a pre-defined bioset (a GO term, a pathway), or your own genomic data set (differentially expressed genes).
  • Body Atlas: Obtain expression levels in normal tissues and common cell lines.
  • Disease Atlas: Find diseases, traits and conditions associated with a queried gene, SNP, or data set.
  • Pharmaco Atlas: Discover compounds and treatments that affect your query.
  • Knockdown Atlas: See which genetic perturbations affect your query.
  • Genetic Markers: Explore novel biomarkers for a queried phenotype.
  • Meta-Analysis: Cross-study comparisons of related genomic datasets.
