"Hi! Welcome to GeneProf!"
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!
Some of GeneProf's highlights include:
GeneProf is academic software developed at the Centre for Regenerative Medicine / Institute for Stem Cell Research, University of Edinburgh and has benefited from funding by the Medical Research Council and the EU Framework 7 Project "EuroSyStem".
