I loaded a CuffDiff file but I cannot see it.2018-08-22T08:39:59+00:00

Please make sure your are using the “…gene_exp.diff” file that comes from CuffLinks. There are some applications that claim to emulate CuffDiff output (e.g. Galaxy). If you are using one of these applications, please make sure the output file has all columns populated. See below for specific columns that must be present.

How long does an analysis take?2018-08-22T08:40:42+00:00

Generally, each analysis takes about 15 minutes to complete. If there are other analyses queued ahead of yours, it may take a bit longer. You will receive an email as soon as the analysis is complete.

How much will it cost?2018-08-22T08:41:15+00:00

iPathwayGuide is 100% FREE to use and view for your first 3 datasets. Your first 3 reports have a 72 hour FREE preview period. To unlock download and meta-analysis capabilities, you must purchase each dataset. After the first 3 datasets, all subsequent analyses must be purchased to view, download, or be used in any meta analysis.

Creation of multiple accounts to gain a new preview period is strictly forbidden under the terms set forth by the End User License Agreement (EULA). So please don’t do that.

Reports may be purchased individually via credit card or PayPal. 30-day and Annual subscriptions are also available for purchase. Call one of our representatives today to get a customized quotation. 734-922-0110

Why do I get different results with GEO2R vs. your CEL file uploader?2018-08-22T08:57:29+00:00

GEO2R does not perform normalization for Affymetrix CEL files. The Advaita iPathwayGuide CEL file uploader currently utilizes the Gene-chip Robust Multi-array Average (GCRMA) normalization method. As such, there can be discrepancies between CEL files processed with GEO2R vs. iPathwayGuide.
