Analysis of proteomics data
Qlucore Omics Explorer lets the researcher freely examine and analyze data from protemics experiments. For protein analysis the following functionality will be of specific interest
- Investigate any structure in data using variance filtering combined with PCA.
- Perform statistical filtering using ANOVA to enhance results.
- Generate a list of proteins that classifies data based on a selection of statistical tests: F-test, t-tests or regression.
- Use hierarchical clustering or PCA to indentify subgroups.
- Work with Variable PCA plots to find correlation and networks among selected proteins.
