What can I do with Expression Atlas?

Expression Atlas can be used to:

  • Find in which conditions a particular gene, e.g. UMOD, is normally expressed (baseline results) and in which conditions this gene is differentially expressed (differential results) (Figure 5A)
  • Find which genes are expressed in a particular condition, e.g. heart (baseline results) or which genes are differentially expressed, e.g. lung carcinoma (differential results) across experiments in different species (Figure 5B)
  • Access analysis results of baseline or differential datasets for one species, e.g. Mus musculus (Figure 5C) 
  • Access analysis results of large-scale datasets, e.g. GTEx (Figure 5D)

During this course we will cover other functionalities of Expression Atlas such as:

  • Exploring gene co-expression across tissues or cell lines
  • Visualising biological variation among replicates
  • Visualising gene expression in a genome browser
  • Identifying Gene Ontology, InterPro or Reactome terms that are statistically over-represented in the set of differentially expressed genes
  • Downloading gene expression results for each experiment
  • Finding annotations for each gene from different resources such as Ensembl, UniProt, InterPro and Gene Ontology
