New SPELL server: Fresh look and faster

Please note that we have moved the WormBase SPELL tool to a new server on the Amazon Cloud: https://spell.wormbase.org.  This should not affect any of our users, as the ‘Tools’ link on the main WormBase menu bar will take you to this new URL.
SPELL (Serial Pattern of Expression Levels Locator) is a query-driven search engine for microarray, RNAseq and Proteomics data. Given a small set of query genes, SPELL identifies which datasets are most informative for these genes, then within those datasets, additional genes are identified with expression profiles most similar to the query set. WormBase SPELL has collected over 6,000 experiments for 9 nematode species. Users can also download these datasets for their own analysis. See WormBase SPELL Tutorial: http://wiki.wormbase.org/index.php/SPELL
The new WormBase SPELL server is twice as fast as the old version. Please give it a try and let us know what you think!

 

High throughput datasets in SPELL now searchable based on topic

Data sets coming from high throughput experiments which reside in SPELL have now been updated with topics so that you can actually search by your favorite topic.  You can see the topic search options by clicking the button ‘Options for Filtering Results by Dataset Tags‘ on the SPELL home page under the search box  for Gene Name(s).
