    Qualtrics @ UTHSC
  • Bayesian Network Webserver for Biological Network Modeling

    Users can quickly upload data, identify network model structure that best explains data, use model to make predictions about relationships among model variables. Allows modeling of both discrete and continuous variables. Developed by Yan Cui, PhD (UTHSC Department of Microbiology, Immunology & Biochemistry)

  • Chilibot

    Searches PubMed to identify relationships between genes, proteins, and/or keywords. Results are returned as a graph. Advanced options include: automated hypothesis generation and restricting context using synonyms. Developed by Hao Chen, PhD and Burt Sharp, MD (UTHSC Department of Pharmacology).

  • GeneIndexer

    Uses text-mining to identify &l; model explicit and implicit gene and SNP relationships from Medline abstracts; deduces new/innovative gene-to-gene and gene-to-keyword relationships for investigation. Developed by Ramin Homayouni, PhD (U of M; dev’d @ UTHSC) & Michael Berry, PhD (EE & Comp Sci, UT Knoxville).

  • GeneNetwork

    Linked genetic-phenotypic datasets and tools allow study of humans, mice, rats, drosophila, and plant species to conduct quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping and a variety of correlation analyses. Developed by Rob Williams, PhD (UTHSC Department of Genetics, Genomics & Informatics; CITG).
