ViTraM: visualization of transcriptional modules

Show Summary Details

Preview

Motivation: We developed ViTraM, a tool that allows visualizing overlapping transcriptional modules in an intuitive way. By visualizing not only the genes and the experiments in which the genes are co-expressed, but also additional properties of the modules such as the regulators and regulatory motifs that are responsible for the observed co-expression, ViTraM can assist in the biological analysis and interpretation of the output of module detection tools.

Availability: The ViTraM software is platform-independent. The software and supplementary material are available at: http://homes.esat.kuleuven.be/∼kmarchal/ViTraM/Index.html
