Ingenuity Pathways Analysis (IPA)
Software and biological knowledge base for interpretation of genomic and proteomic data.
Includes or is also known as: IPA
IPA provides UCSF researchers with access to the most current knowledge available on: genes, drugs, biomarkers, chemicals, protein families, cellular and disease processes, and signaling and metabolic pathways. The most common uses for IPA include:
- interpretation of microarray, NGS or proteomic datasets
- exploratory investigation of genes, proteins, chemical, and biological functions
- creating customized pathways or molecular interaction networks focused on drug targets, biomarkers, processes, and diseases
- comparing pathways to indentify common, unique, or union of pathway participants
- designing publication quality pathway or network figures
- assessing toxicity and safety of compounds in context of pathways and networks
- identifying potential biomarkers
If you would like to be included in the shared UCSF campus-wide license for IPA:
- There is an hourly charge to use IPA. Before we can provide you with full access to the shared license, you must request a MyCORES IPA account to bill your usage.
- After you have filled out the MYCORES form, email Megan Laurance, Research Informationist at the UCSF Library to get your IPA account activated.
- Questions about how the UCSF shared IPA license works, or about how to best utilize IPA in your research? Please contact Megan.
