Ingenuity Systems has launched Ingenuity iReport for Microarray Gene Expression, an integrated solution for statistical and biological interpretation of -omics data.

The software takes raw data as input and delivers a customized and interactive report that allows researchers to explore genes by function, biological process, role in pathway and disease, and cellular location.

Ingenuity said it will offer free early access to iReport to 5,000 researchers through Oct. 31.

The company said that future iReport offerings will focus on RNA-seq, qPCR, and other –omics platforms.
