Appistry GenomePilot 4.0

Appistry has launched GenomePilot 4.0, the latest update to its DNA data analysis software. The new release incorporates the capability to perform differential expression analysis of RNA-Seq data in three steps: Feature Counts, which allows the user to define a feature count pipeline to identify gene counts for analysis; Experiment Builder, which enables users to create an experiment with traits to be analyzed while the software auto-populates gene counts into the workflow; and Differential Expression, which allows users to run differential expression analyses and visualize their results within one system without programming or working in multiple tools.
