Quickly understand and visualize your data

QIAGEN Ingenuity Pathway Analysis has broadly been adopted by the life science research community and is cited in thousands of articles for the analysis, integration, and interpretation of data derived from ‘omics experiments, such as RNA-seq, small RNA-seq, microarrays including miRNA and SNP, metabolomics, proteomics, and small scale experiments.

Insightful data analysis and interpretation

Data analysis and interpretation with builds on the comprehensive, manually curated content of the QIAGEN Knowledge Base to help scientists understand the biological context of their expression analysis experiments. Powerful algorithms combined with content provide unique advanced analysis capabilities to help you identify the most significant pathways and discover potential novel regulatory networks and causal relationships associated with your experimental data.

Going beyond pathway analysis

Causal Network Analysis, a component of QIAGEN Ingenuity Pathway Analysis Advanced Analytics, exposes causal relationships associated with your experimental data by expanding upstream analysis to include regulators that are not directly connected to targets in your dataset. In addition, BioProfiler helps you identify potential therapeutic or toxicity targets, as well as associated known drugs and biomarkers.

Dive deeper: translate your molecular data into useful knowledge

Analysis Match – a new feature of QIAGEN Ingenuity Pathway Analysis

Automatically match your analyses against approximately 57,000 curated publicly available datasets. Compare results, validate interpretation and better understand causal connections between diseases, genes, and networks of upstream regulators.

Strengthen hypotheses and discover new biological insights​

By combining a massive compendium of knowledge from the literature together with a massive collection of gene expression measurements.

“Using QIAGEN Ingenuity Pathway Analysis and the Upstream Regulator Analysis module, with just seven cases, we found two really strong predictors for differences between the platinum-sensitive and the platinum-resistant patients…“
