Visual and interactive gene expression analysis

Bioconductor version: Development (3.9)

Phantasus is a web-application for visual and interactive gene expression analysis. Phantasus is based on Morpheus – a web-based software for heatmap visualisation and analysis, which was integrated with an R environment via OpenCPU API. Aside from basic visualization and filtering methods, R-based methods such as k-means clustering, principal component analysis or differential expression analysis with limma package are supported.
