The Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA) is a client-based software that interfaces with the Qiagen IPA servers to enables analysis, and understanding of data from gene expression, miRNA, and SNP microarrays, as well as metabolomics, proteomics, genetic screens and RNAseq experiments. Even small experiments can benefit from their manually curated database which contains many interactions not found in commonly used public interactome databases. The data analysis and search capabilities of IPA can help scientists understand the significance of data, specific targets, or candidate biomarkers in the context of larger biological or chemical systems.
For more information about IPA, please see their website.
