WhichGenes is a powerful gene set building tool. It allows the user to extract lists of genes from multiple sources in order to use them for further experiments.
1. Select the organism of interest.
2. Select the source for extraction.
3. Configure the query.
4. Retrieve and give a name to your new set.
5. Manage your gene-set cart.
6. Export your sets to your favourite format.
What is WhichGenes?
WhichGenes is a bioinformatics gene set building tool. It allows the user to create and manage custom genesets extracted from
several sources. Currently, WhichGenes can extract genes from:
WhichGenes is an open-source project. Moreover, it is intended to be extensible, specially when adding new sources to extract gene lists
WhichGenes tries to avoid the use of a local database (wherever it is possible) in order to retrieve up-to-date gene lists coming directly from the third party databases (CTD, KEGG, AmiGO, etc.)
In order to use WhichGenes, you have two choices:
