How to run Blast of the differential expressed genes?

It is possible to run Blast only on the differential expressed genes and not on all the data with OmicsBox. One has to select only those sequences that have differential expressed genes in the OmicsBox project.First,  make sure that the name of the sequences in the project match the ones from the differential expression results.

Reanalyzing the A. galli transcriptomic response to an anthelmintic drug with OmicsBox

In this analysis, we will reproduce the study that was carried out by Michaela M. Martis et al. in 2017 (doi: http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0185182) with OmicsBox. Introduction Ascaridia galli is an intestinal parasite which infects a wide range of domestic birds. It is especially important in European farms, where it parasites laying hens and cause some economic problems. The only available treatments are

De novo genome assembly and annotation of sheath rot fungus Sarocladium oryzae with Blast2GO

This project reproduces a study carried out by Hittalmani S. et al. in 2016 about the S. oryzae fungus which causes sheath rot of rice. We used Blast2GO for the main analysis steps like the structural and functional annotation and analysis. (Original research paper: https://doi.org/10.1186/s12864-016-2599-0) 1.  Introduction Sheath rot disease caused by S. oryzae is an emerging threat to rice

How to perform a Gene Set Enrichment Analysis (GSEA)

This articles explains what a Gene Set Enrichment Analysis (GSEA) is, how it works and how it can be performed with OmicsBox. What is an enrichment analysis? An enrichment analysis is a bioinformatics method which identifies enriched or over-represented gene sets among a list of ranked genes. Gene sets are groups of genes that are functionally related according to current
