GoMiner    Application Build: 461     Database Build: 2011-01     Genomics and Pharmacology Facility Genomics and Pharmacology Facility Logo

GoMiner™ is a tool for biological interpretation of 'omic' data – including data from gene expression microarrays. Omic experiments often generate lists of dozens or hundreds of genes that differ in expression between samples, raising the question

What does it all mean biologically?

To answer this question, GoMiner leverages the Gene Ontology (GO) to identify the biological processes, functions and components represented in these lists. Instead of analyzing microarray results with a gene-by-gene approach, GoMiner classifies the genes into biologically coherent categories and assesses these categories. The insights gained through GoMiner can generate hypotheses to guide additional research.

We have updated our Getting Started section with guidance on chosing between GoMiner and High-Throughput GoMiner

New Features

  • Latest !!! Remove redundancy from CIMs. Read about how RedundancyMiner can clean up redundancy in your results.
  • Latest !!! We have updated the build of the GO database.
  • Automatically create Clustered Image Maps (CIMs) from HTGM.
  • New options for adjusting reports and calculations.
  • Other Recent GoMiner Highlights...

To get started using GoMiner

GoMiner displays the genes within the framework of the Gene Ontology hierarchy in two ways

In the form of a tree, similar to that in AmiGO In the form of a 'Directed Acyclic Graph' (DAG)
