BioGPS data overhaul! More datasets, new features, and more!

BioGPS has overhauled all the datasets in our dataset library. The datasets available in our library used to come from GEO. Now, the datasets have been imported from ArrayExpress, which translates into some awesome new features to use in your research! Previously, there was a little more than 2000 datasets in the BioGPS dataset library. Now, there are nearly 6000 datasets available! The same...

MyGene.info: we need your support!

It has been almost a year since we released the v2 API of MyGene.info services last July. MyGene.info has grown from an internal service behind BioGPS to a robust, high-performance service provider for anybody to query for up-to-date gene annotation data. Currently, MyGene.info handles ~3 million requests every month, from ~5000 unique IPs. And we are confident that is just a small fraction of...

Quick ID mapping using MyGene.info

ID mapping is a very common, and often not fun, task for every bioinformatician. Suppose you have a list of gene symbols or reporter ids from an upstream analysis, and then your next analysis requires the use of gene IDs (e.g. Entrez gene IDs or Ensembl gene IDs). Converting from one symbol/identifier to another is a conceptually simple but often tedious process. Websites that pay for articles...

MyGene.info v2 API goes live!

We are happy to announce that the MyGene.info Version 2 Application Programming Interface (API) is now live. In the v2 API, we have rebuilt the core framework, which increases both data capacity and query performance significantly. For those who are unfamiliar, MyGene.info provides simple-to-use REST web services to query/retrieve gene annotation data. It’s designed...

Molecular Predictor Repository? (not gene set repository)

I have a simple question.  Say that I have the results from a gene expression analysis done in my laboratory or pulled from a public repository.  Say the sample has something to do with cancer (or I think that it might).  Say I read about so called 'signatures' that have been found to be associated with key phenotypes related to cancer.  (Here is a list of 13...
