BiSA is a bioinformatics database resource that allows investigators to run a number of overlapping genomic region analyses using their own datasets, or against the pre-loaded Knowledge Base. Analysis results can be restricted to a chromosome; the minimum base pair overlap in two sets or maximum distance between regions can be set; as can the maximum allowed distance between region centres. BiSA is capable of reporting overlapping regions that share common base pairs; regions that are nearby; regions that are not overlapping; average region sizes. BiSA can also annotate binding regions of interest with nearby genes. The results of overlap analysis can be imported into the Knowledge Base, allowing them to go into downstream analysis and independent annotation. A Venn diagram tool is also integrated into the software to allow users to visualize overlap results.
