We recently developed a cloud-based version of our Omics Playground platform for the analysis of human and mouse transcriptomics and proteomics datasets.
The exponential increase in omics dataset generation creates a downstream bottleneck due to the increasing requirements for more advanced analysis approaches. Those are often beyond the reach of biologists without any formal training in programming.
With our platform we want to make the analysis of transcriptomics (including scRNA-seq) and proteomics datasets faster and more accessible to researchers through a user-friendly GUI that does not require any coding experience.
Compared to the published version, we implemented new modules and pre-loaded 5865 public datasets. We have also included 200 datasets in a separate version dedicated to viral infections, with a particular emphasis on coronaviruses.
The free online versions are accessible upon registration from any browser at:
Users can analyse any of the pre-loaded datasets or upload and analyse their own datasets with a maximum limit of 20 samples and 5 comparisons.
We do welcome feedback on the platform through our website (https://bigomics.ch/) or through our google group linked in the platform itself.
