PEATmoss Help

PEATmoss is an interactive tool to visualize gene expression data. These help pages explain several ways to query the expression data and to visualize the results, enabling the comparison of the expression profiles of several genes simultaneously, as well as to visualize co-expression information. One section describes how to download the expression data in a format that is easy to export to spreadsheet software and to generate figures that are ready for presentations or publications.

PEATmoss unifies in one single tool P. patens data sets from RNA-seq and expression microarrays based on multiple gene versions. Please, check out our video gallery for more information about PEATmoss and how the P. patens gene model lookup database is integrated to convert gene versions automatically when querying the expression data.
