IPA software combines powerful analysis and visualization tools with a uniquely structured knowledge base to help you get biologically-meaningful insights from your experimental data.


With IPA you can:

  • Predict activation or inhibition of upstream regulators
  • Predict important regulatory or signaling genes such as transcription factors, microRNAs and cytokines
  • Understand downstream effects on biological functions and processes including whether that process is increased or decreased based on gene expression results
  • Auto generate regulatory networks which describe potential mechanisms of action predicted to explain the gene expression changes in your dataset
  • Identify significantly regulated isoforms from RNA-Seq experiments and determine their potential impact using information about functional protein domains and isoform-specific literature

Don't miss out on the opportunity to try IPA for free so that you can see how to get the most out of your 'omics data.
