Welcome!

Omics PlayCloud (OPC) is a free and open self-service bioinformatics platform for the visualization, analytics and exploration of Big Omics data in the cloud. OPC is specially suited to less computer-savvy biologists, allowing to produce both basic and more sophisticated analysis of large gene expression data in a user-friendly and intuitive graphical user interface that requires no previous programming experience.

For an overview of the platform, please refer to our publication: Murodzhon Akhmedov, Axel Martinelli, Roger Geiger, Ivo Kwee.
