More flexible data sharing is available.

Profile Gene Expression Itself

Goodbye, profiling relative difference (fold-change) of gene expression.

Gene Expression Commons provides absolute common reference by global-scale meta analysis of publicly available microarray data. It enables profiling of gene expression itself (how it works).


Open Platform

Gene Expression Commons is design as an open platform. You can upload your microarray data, design your model, and control access level.



Many models representing biological relationship of populations are open to public. Just type your gene of interest. You'll see gene expression activity of any gene in those models.
