EndNote as a reference and full text organizer with a collaborative Web tool
  • Your personal reference library will save you countless hours of organizing your research.
  • Group references according to your research projects and attach up to 45 files per record for managing related materials.
  • Locate full text PDF files for you or create a reference when importing a PDF file. Synchronize references and file attachments to your EndNote Web account.
  • Share groups with other EndNote users easily and manage your ResearcherID publication list.
EndNote as a bibliography maker Cite While You Write™ takes the pain out of citing and formatting references in Microsoft ® Word, and OpenOffice.org Writer 3 for Windows. You can also create bibliographies for other word processors using Format Paper (RTF files). There is simply no better tool than EndNote for handling diverse bibliographic style requirements.

Ingenuity Pathways Analysis (IPA) (2 user)

Introduction:IPA is software that helps researchers model, analyze, and understand the complex biological and chemical systems at the core of life science research. IPA has been broadly adopted by the life science research community and is cited in thousands of peer-reviewed journal articles.
IPA helps you understand complex 'omics data at multiple levels by integrating data from a variety of experimental platforms and providing insight into the molecular and chemical interactions, cellular phenotypes, and disease processes of your system. IPA provides insight into the causes of observed gene expression changes and into the predicted downstream biological effects of those changes.
Even if you don&rsquot have experimental data, you can use IPA to intelligently search the Ingenuity®Knowledge Base for information on genes, proteins, chemicals, drugs, and molecular relationships to build biological models or get up to speed in a relevant area of research. IPA provides the right biological context to facilitate informed decision-making, advance research project design, and generate new testable hypotheses.
