Preparation Data Import Normalization & Pre-processing Data Browsing Statistical Analysis Biological Interpretation Outsourceable Crucial

The data analysis workflow is composed of not-so-important outsourceable parts and crucial parts that you have to take care of by yourself. Novice analysts often don't care what will come later, and they like to do it from the beginning sequentially. Consequently, when they come to the crucial part, they are already exhausted. As a result, they cannot fully use the data. We think they tend to fail in prioritizing tasks due to the lack of an entire vision.

By the way, if you ask data analysis to somebody but Subio, you will likely to receive lists of differentially expressed genes in Excel, and some chart images in PDF. They are not final results, but a starting-point of the enormous trials and errors for extracting biological meaning or insights. But the file formats are too simple for doing such a massive task, and they misunderstand them as final results. You no way make full use of the data.

So, we take charge of the outsourceable parts and then deliver an SSA(Subio Series Archive) file as a result of this service. You import it into the Subio Platform to browse the whole process from the raw data. And you can add your approach to it because it is not the final result, as we mentioned above. What we can do is only preparing so that you can smoothly take over the analysis.

After the delivery

We hold a web meeting to show the characteristics, limitations, and problems, if we see, of the raw data with Subio Platform's visual aid. And also we explain how we processed it, and what statistical methods were applied step by step.

You can ask for free online support anytime you need it. We know that it is useless to make you overwhelmed by too much information. So we think having many small meetings is adequate for you to digest. Please don't hesitate to ask.

This service covers such generous aftercare. Are there any reasons not to use it?

Plug-ins allow you to play with data.

The delivered SSA file includes results of statistical analysis though; you can fiddle more by yourself with plug-ins.

Plug-in set users can order Online Training and this service anytime at a 50% discounted rate for one year from the purchase date. You can use the advantage not only for your data, but also publicly available data sets like GEO or TCGA. So let us offer you order this service and plug-ins together.

About datasets and data types

We charge not per sample, but per dataset. For example, we charge per Dataset (GDS) or Series (GSE) of Gene Expression Omnibus. If a dataset contains less than 100 samples, we count it as one Small Dataset. If the number exceeds 100, we count it as one Large Dataset. Even if the number of samples is less than 100, we apply Large Dataset if the data rows are more than 100,000.

By the way, let me talk about data types for this service. We basically can analyze any data which is composed of IDs and corresponding measurement values.

For example;

  • gene expression data
  • miRNA expression data
  • Exon or splicing variant expression data
  • ChIP-chip or ChIP-seq data
  • CGH data
  • DNA methylation data
  • Proteome data
  • Metabolome data
  • We do not accept FASTQ files from sequencers. Please order RNA-Seq Data Analysis Support with this service.
  • We do not support identifying compounds or peptides from MS. Please prepare a table of identified substance and values.

Payment and Shipping


1 Prepare a annotation file.

We need the annotation file if you use custom microarrays.

We do not need it for RNA-Seq data or catalog microarrays like Agilent or Affymetrix. But still, you can send a file if you want us to add.

2 Prepare experimental data files.

We accept following formats as experimental data files.

  • Raw data files (TXT or CEL) of microarrays (gene expression, microRNA, exon, CGH, etc.)
  • TXT files of counts/FPKM or RPKM of RNA-seq
  • BED or TXT files of ChIP-seq or Methyl-seq
  • GEO accession ID (GSE or GDS number) or the download URL of datasets

If you're not sure, please let us know what kind of files you have. Sending screenshots of directories helps a lot. Or you can request online support.

3 Prepare documents about the dataset.

Please prepare a table of file names and experimental parameters.

Additionally, you can send us documents about experimental design and purpose. If you tell us what pattern you are interested in, we apply the best way for that.

4 Send a zip file.

Please make a zip file of all the files you prepare for step 1 - 3, and send it from Contact Us page.

5 Receive an SSA file.

We return a SSA or SOA file as a result. You can see the contents by importing it into Subio Platform. Please select "Import Archive..." under Platform menu to open the file.

6 Understand the analysis flow.

The service includes a web meeting to explain the characteristics of the data and analysis steps. You can ask alternative or additional analysis within the meeting. In such cases, we will re-analyze the data and send the result again. We ask you to order another service for further requests.
