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!

 

Check out SPELL for microarray, tiling array and RNA seq data

SPELL (Serial Pattern of Expression Levels Locator) is a query-driven search engine for microarray, RNAseq and tiling array data. Given a small set of query genes, SPELL can identify which datasets are most informative for these genes, then within these datasets, additional genes are identified with expression profiles most similar to the query set.  SPELL contains more than 5000 experiments from over 300 plus datasets.

You can also download datasets by following the ‘Dataset Listing‘ link from the side menu bar on the SPELL home page.
