What is Pathway Analysis?
This may have different flavors:
Therefore, the geneXplain platform provides an empirical way to identify the specific combination of sites that characterizes a given set of co-regulating promoters.
Most commonly, it is of interest to know which signaling or metabolic pathways are activated under certain experimental conditions.
A slightly different question may be to find out which pathways were used to express a certain observed phenotype.
Both types of problems can be conveniently addressed with the geneXplain platform.
