  • Many of the Galapagos researchers use GENEVESTIGATOR in everyday research to come to insights and hypotheses in disease and drug biology. The powerful API functionalities in the Enterprise edition allowed us to integrate both internal and public expression data with other datatypes and knowledge.
  • The ease of use of GENEVESTIGATOR, the quick and thorough response of its support and development team, and the power of the analyses it provides have made it an essential tool in my bioinformatics tool box.
  • GENEVESTIGATOR is a smart and extremely helpful software. It is to some extent addictive. We mentioned it in each paper focused on expression data analysis or convergent genomics.
  • As a bioinformatics service facility that always tries to identify novel and innovative bioinformatics software that might be beneficial for VIB researchers, we are very satisfied to have licensed GENEVESTIGATOR.
  • Nice work! The new interface is spectacular. GENEVESTIGATOR allows me to find candidate genes which can be fed elsewhere to build a biological hypothesis.
