Analysis of large-scale omics data has become more and more challenging due to high dimensionality. More complex analysis methods and tools are required to handle such data. While many methods already exist, those methods often produce different results.
To help users obtain more appropriate results (i.e. candidate genes), researchers from Seoul National University, have developed a tool, GRACOMICS that compares numerous analysis results visually in a more systematic way; this enables the users to easily interpret the results more comfortably.
- GRACOMICS is a graphical user interface (GUI)-based program written in Java for cross-platform computing environments, and can be applied to compare analysis results for any type of large-scale omics data.
- GRACOMICS has the ability to visualize multiple analysis results interactively.
- GRACOMICS was developed to provide instantaneous results (plots and tables), corresponding to user-defined threshold values, since there are yet no other up-to-date omics data visualization tools that provide such features.
This tool can be useful for biologists to identify genes commonly found by intersected statistical methods, for further experimental validation.
