Product Highlights

BaseSpace Correlation Engine extends your research by integrating your data with the world’s genomic knowledgebase. This interactive data analysis environment helps you validate results and test new hypotheses. Use it to compare molecular profiles from your own experiments with results from a large, curated repository of open-access and controlled-access public data sets.

With BaseSpace Correlation Engine, researchers can:
  • Explore a continually growing library of curated, public genomic data
  • Identify mechanisms of disease, drug targets, and prognostic or predictive biomarkers
  • Search literature and use a “quick view,” free of charge with no login required
  • Access an arsenal of web-based tools to mine data and create billions of novel correlations
  • View pathways that play a role in disease development across multiple studies and data types
  • Analyze gene function across more than 20,000 genomic studies to understand gene activity across different species
  • Analyze candidate molecules for pharmacokinetic and toxicity profiles
  • Compare human data to model organism experimental results to gain context
Basespace Correlation Engine has a dedicated domain for COVID-19 host response data that:
  • Is rapidly updated with SARS-CoV-2 data for human and animal models that all users can access
  • Provides a dyanmic environment for results to be put into context, accelerating discoveries and hypothesis validation, biomarker identification and drug discovery
  • Allows data and results sharing between COVID-19 researchers (optional)
  • Is free of charge for the first 6 months

Frequently Purchased Together

Gene Function Studies

Analyze gene function across genomic studies in major disease areas and across many kinds of molecular data. Use this information to understand gene activity across studies in humans, model organisms, and cell lines.

Drug and Disease Mechanisms

Analyze candidate molecules for pharmacokinetic and toxicity profiles and compare disease profiles across animal models, cohorts, and disease stages.

Cross-Species Analysis

Optimize experimental systems and test the mechanisms of disease progression or drug response using a cross-species analysis framework. Compare human data to experimental results from model organisms to derive biological context.
