Genomatix Genome Analyzer (GGA)

The Genomatix Genome Analyzer (GGA) is our integrated solution for comprehensive visualization and interpretation of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data from ChIP, RNA, DNA, methylation or small RNA sequencing. Each analyzer is brimming with state-of-the-art technology that sheds light on biological context – essential to help you understand the big picture. The GGA produces results of higher relevance, answering your scientific questions with greater precision than ever before.

The biological background data consisting of annotation and gene network data provided by ElDorado plus the transcription factor knowledge contained in MatBase lets researchers analyze and interpret their experimental results in a unique biological context on every GGA for more than 30 different species. Differential expression analysis (down to the transcript level), network and pathway verification and generation, regulatory frameworks, literature analysis and binding site motif definition are only a few of the tasks that can be performed.

The GGA's award-winning intuitive web-based GUI is complemented by command line tools that can be integrated into workflows and pipelines, enabling users of all levels of experience to quickly and efficiently gain the scientific insight needed for applications or publications.

Key features

Key features of the Genomatix Genome Analyzer (GGA)

  • Offers the state-of-the-art technologies of the Genomatix Software Suite plus additional analysis capabilities for large data sets from Next Generation Sequencing experiments (additional modules "NGS Mapping" and "NGS Analysis").
  • Provides first class genome annotation and background data for 33 species.
  • First fully integrated automatic ChIP-Seq data analysis workflow (classification and clustering of reads, sequence extraction, transcription factor analysis, automatic generation of binding site motifs and weight matrices from the data)
  • True second-level analysis that shows you the biology behind your data.
  • Use the same technologies that our in-house scientific consultants apply to customer projects.
  • Command line tools and direct annotation database access allow integration in your own workflows.
  • Not really a black box, as our algorithms have been published in peer-reviewed publications and the use of the software is documented in numerous scientific articles.
