Optogenerapy > WEBINAR: Omics data analysis and modelling using Genome Enhancer and its application to Optogenerapy project


Omics data analysis and modelling using Genome Enhancer and its application to Optogenerapy project

The Genome Enhancer is a fully automated pipeline for analysis of patient omics data, including genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, epigenomics and metabolomics data. It performs so-called Upstream Analysis, which identifies master-regulators – potential drug targets identified for a certain patient, or a group of patients, and the drugs that may be effective in this case. Genome Enhancer generates a comprehensive analysis report which includes detailed information about the methods used and the results obtained, including genes that characterize the studied pathology, the transcription factors that regulate those genes, and the reconstructed model of the intracellular signaling network with identified master regulators – the potential drug targets for treating the studied pathology.



In this webinar, Dr. Alexander Kel, GeneXplain Chief Scientific Officer, will explain us the idea of Upstream Analysis as the base concept behind the Genome Enhancer and its functionalities. In addition, he will show the work done for the Optogenerapy project using an example of RNA-seq data.
