New interactive NGS module is major addition to Omics Explorer
We are delighted to introduce the new and extensively updated Qlucore Omics Explorer version 3.3. The new NGS module and a range of added functionality makes it easier and faster to achieve new research insights. Version 3.3 represents a significant step in our efforts to support you with improved usability, functionality and business flexibility. The new NGS functionality is packaged in a separate module which can be ordered separately.
Qlucore Omics Explorer 3.3 base package includes the following new features:
- More options for RNA-seq data – added normalization methods (FPKM/RPKM, TPM) and support for stranded/non stranded data
- The new status interface dynamically shows all calculations applied to a data set and an overview of all open data sets and plots
- A fundamental rework of the heatmap export option now ensures scaling and resolution in line with screen layout. Heatmaps can be exported directly to pdf format
- New statistical methods (voom + limma and Kruskal-Wallis) available through the API to R.
- The new handy pdf report option for export of all open plots, calculations and references to used methods for a data set
- An updated user interface which is more flexible, supports 4k screens and introduce quick launch buttons for the GSEA workbench, statistics dialog and the GO browser
- Updated Box plot with the option to display individual samples
- Reworked Documentation and Help system with extensive Getting Started resources, How To documents and video tutorials.
The NGS Module includes
- A project manager that enables user friendly project configuration of all included files (BAM, VCF, GTF, BED…) using drag and drop
- Inbuilt variant caller
- Integrated Genome browser
- NGS filter module for dynamic filtering of the content showed in the browser (typical filter categories are variants, read coverage and presence)
- Inbuilt quantification of expression levels for RNA-seq data enabling dual and synchronized analysis in expression and genomic spaces
