BABELOMICS: a systems biology perspective in the functional annotation of genome-scale experiments

Nucleic Acids Res. 2006 Jul 1;34(Web Server issue):W472-6. doi: 10.1093/nar/gkl172.


We present a new version of Babelomics, a complete suite of web tools for functional analysis of genome-scale experiments, with new and improved tools. New functionally relevant terms have been included such as CisRed motifs or bioentities obtained by text-mining procedures. An improved indexing has considerably speeded up several of the modules. An improved version of the FatiScan method for studying the coordinate behaviour of groups of functionally related genes is presented, along with a similar tool, the Gene Set Enrichment Analysis. Babelomics is now more oriented to test systems biology inspired hypotheses. Babelomics can be found at
