GeneProf is a web-based, graphical software suite that allows users to analyse data produced using high-throughput sequencing platforms (RNA-seq and ChIP-seq; "Next-Generation Sequencing" or NGS): Next-gen analysis for next-gen data!GeneProf makes extensive use of visualisation to explore ChIP-seq and RNA-seq data in the context of the genome as well as for data quality control, visualisation of results from individual experiments and for meta-analysis across experiments. Some of GeneProf's highlights include:                                
  • Easy-to-use web-based interface:Access your data at any time from any reasonably modern computer with a working internet connection
  • Analysis wizards make your life easy:Pre-defined, step-by-step workflows make it possible for anybody to analyse their short read data in a minimum of hands-on time).
  • Versatile modules:Advanced users and data analysis experts benefit from GeneProf's broad range of analysis modules, which can be combined freely a minimum of hands-on time
  • Integrated Analysis:Analysis of ChIP-seq and RNA-seq data in one place, plus support for the integration of other external data (e.g. from microarrays).
  • Comprehensive Resource:GeneProf provides a comprehensive resource of analyzed next-generation sequencing data. Experimental results can be easily accessed and compared and the analysis procedures employed to produce the data are fully transparent and can be accessed readily
  • Extensibility:Algorithm developers and computer programmers can develop their own modules and extend the functionality of GeneProf. Existing software can be easily wrapped and integrated in the GeneProf framework  and data from GeneProf may be used externally
