Ingenuity Pathway Analysis

For more pages, click the Navigation Menu abov
Ingenuity Pathways Analysis (IPA) is a software application for the analysis, integration, and interpretation of data derived from ‘omics experiments, such as RNAseq, small RNAseq, microarrays including miRNA and SNP, metabolomics, proteomics, and small scale experiments that generate gene and chemi-cal lists. Powerful analysis and search tools uncover the significance of data and identify new targets or candidate biomarkers within the context of biological systems.

IPA goes beyond pathway analysis by:

  • Identifying key regulators and activity to explain expression patterns
  • Predicting downstream effects on biological and disease processes
  • Providing targeted data on genes, proteins, chemicals, and drugs
  • Building interactive models of experimental systems

Insightful data analysis and interpretation

Data analysis and interpretation with IPA builds on the comprehensive, manually curated content of the Ingenuity Knowledge Base to help scientists understand the biological context of their expression analysis experiments. Powerful algorithms combined with content provide unique advanced analysis capabilities to help you identify the most significant pathways and discover potential novel regulatory networks and causal relationships associated with your experimental data.
