Gene Expression’s Big Rethink
Highlight on our open-source bioinformatics pipeline to extract knowledge from typical RNA-Seq studies and generate interactive principal component analysis (PCA) plots.
Article in GEN

The PCA plot shown here was generated using Gene Expression Omnibus/Sequence Read Archive data, which represents ~55,000 RNA-Seq human samples. Colors reflect the results of text searches on the metadata associated with each sample. [Alexander Lachmann, PhD]
