Event Details



IPA’s Analysis Match Explorer was launched in March 2020 and this upgrade is being evaluated for purchase by NCI. NCI scientists will have no-charge access to Analysis Match Explorer for a limited time. This seminar will highlight the additional capabilities provided by Land Explorer for IPA and how it can be used to enhance your projects. Your feedback to BTEP and CBIIT on the benefit you feel these additional features might provide for you is greatly appreciated

Land Explorer for IPA provides access to curated ‘omic data from hundreds of thousands of samples and functions as a complement to the curated literature in the QIAGEN Knowledge Base. Through simple queries and by utilizing sample level metadata, you can:

§ Seamlessly jump from IPA into more granular sample- and gene-level details in Land Explorer, the web-based portal to OmicSoft’s massive Lands databases: OncoLand and DiseaseLand.
§ Explore ‘omics datasets from GTEx, the CCLE, TCGA, and thousands of individual cancer studies from GEO and other repositories.
§ Navigate from a gene of interest in IPA to quickly discover its tissue or cell expression, the diseases and treatments that cause it to be up-or-down-regulated, the cancers in which it is frequently mutated, the effect of mutations on patient survival and much more.
§ Easily determine the expression of a gene, where a gene is observed to be differentially expressed, and additional ‘omic characteristics such as somatic DNA alterations.
§ Query the Lands Datasets even without your own study data
