IPA - Ingenuity Pathway Analysis

Ingenuity Pathways Analysis (IPA) is a software and database search tool for finding functions and pathways for specific biological states. It is a web-delivered application that makes use of the Ingenuity Pathways Knowledge Base, a currated database consisting of millions of individually modeled relationships between proteins, genes, complexes, cells, tissues, drugs, and diseases. It currently has data for humans, rats, and mice.
