Chipster is a biologist-friendly analysis software for high-throughput data. It contains over 200 analysis tools for next generation sequencing (NGS), microarray and proteomics data. Users can combine tools in automatic analysis workflows, which can be shared. Chipster's interactive visualizations allow users to select datapoints and create new gene lists. For NGS data Chipster contains a built-in genome browser, which highlights SNPs and automatically indexes BAM files and calculates coverage.
Chipster’s ability to provide a biologist-friendly access to a powerful analysis platform is technically based on a desktop application user interface, a flexible distributed architecture, and the ability to integrate many types of analysis tools (command line, R/Bioconductor, Java, Web Services etc). The platform is generic and easily extendable to other areas, even beyond bioinformatics.
