About Subio Platform

A data analysis software for microarray & NGS data
for extracting biological insights by team-working.

No more mindless "statistical" analysis.

If you are looking for software for the following purposes, you can choose any software like GeneSpring, Qlucore, R/Bioconductor, etc. You can do it somehow.

  • I want to easily and quickly get the answer.
  • I want to do the same analysis of a textbook or paper.
  • I want to follow tutorials to complete my work. That's all.

But if you think like below, Subio Platform is the solution.

  • I had some experiences of data analysis, but I was not very much satisfied with the results. So I am looking for something else.
  • I want to learn about omics data analysis from experienced analysts, not about the tool operation.
  • I need to share my data with collaborators to have discussions for biological discovery beyond my perspective.
  • I want to make more use of my data as a long-term asset.
