Latest improvements for IPA

What’s New in the IPA Spring Release (March 2021)


Easily find relevant analyses in the 90,000+ dataset Analysis Match collection

Searching for analyses and datasets of interest to view or overlay is now much easier and more accurate with filterable and customizable metadata columns. Simply enter keywords of interest in a project search, and then use the filters above the metadata columns to narrow the results to exactly what you need.

Data Search and Analysis has new options for searching and filtering. This example shows a search to find mouse liver studies of NASH.


Elucidate biology by finding enriched subcellular locations

The subcellular locations of proteins can provide clues to their function and role(s) in the cell. For example, proteins found in the mitochondria will have different roles than those found in lysosomes.

Now, you can automatically discover and annotate the detailed subcellular locations of molecules in any network or pathway with detailed subcellular locations of the molecules.
