APPLICATIONS OF TECHNOLOGY
- Data visualization for metabolic modeling
- Convenient data input
- Flux data visualization
- Simultaneous visualization of -omics data
- Embedding in Jupyter notebooks
Arrowland is a web-based software application primarily for mapping, integrating, and visualizing a variety of metabolism data of living organisms, including, but not limited to, metabolomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, and fluxomics. It makes multi-omics data analysis intuitive and interactive, addressing the need to visualize functional genomics data in today’s technology research and applications.
The software application improves data sharing and communication by enabling users to visualize their omics data using a web browser on a PC or mobile device. Arrowland increases user’s productivity by simplifying multi-omics data analysis using well developed maps as a guide. Users utilizing this tool can gain insights into their data sets that would be difficult or even impossible to tease out by looking at raw numbers or using existing toolchains to generate static, single-use maps. Arrowland helps users save time by visualizing relative changes in different conditions or over time and helps users produce more significant insights faster. Furthermore, the pre-existing maps decrease the learning curve for beginners in the omics field.
Existing tools such as omix, glamm, byocyc, prometra, escher etc. have provided some capabilities for -omics data. However, Arrowland is the first tool available able to simultaneously show multiple -omics data types (e.g., four -omics data types (transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, fluxomics)) in an interactive, multiscale fashion.
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: A free demonstration of basic Arrowland functionality is available for testing and feedback at https://public-arrowland.jbei.org/
STATUS: Published U. S. Patent Application 16/254,477 (Publication No. 2019/0228841). Advanced software versions are available for co-development and licensing.
