September 29, 2011 | Ingenuity Systems has just announced its iReport product for quickly making sense of 'omics data and will offer free, early access to the first 5,000 researchers to sign up by October 31.
iReport is a “new product concept” explains Heidi Bullock, Ingenuity’s senior director of marketing. “We know today a lot of bench scientists have challenges once they have data and we want to provide a fast and easy way for them to quickly make sense of an experiment.”
iReport offers bench scientists a fast way to understand their ‘omics data without complex software, statistical know-how, or informatics training. The product is a stand-alone report that provides a fully integrated, one-step solution for statistical and biological interpretation of data without software, statistical know-how, or informatics training. Ingenuity iReport for Microarray Gene Expression is the first in a suite of reports, that will soon include RNA-Sequencing, qPCR, and additional ‘omics platforms.
iReport takes raw ‘omics data as input and delivers a customized and interactive report so [researchers] can spend time on understanding the data—not on number crunching,” says Bullok. Reports enable researchers to focus on developing biological insights through exploration and visualization of genes by function, biological process, role in pathway and disease, and cellular location.
“The pathway information and literature references in iReport gave me a lot of confidence in my results, and helped me easily understand the biological role of the genes I was looking at. It’s beautiful interface makes it an easy and compelling way to get faster, more meaningful biological insights from my data,” said Jun Yang, an instructor at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston in a press release.
