Gene expression or metabolomics data generated from clinical settings are often associated with multiple metadata (i.e. diagnosis, genotype, gender, etc.). It is of great interest to analyze and to visualize the data in these contexts. Here, we introduce INVEX - a novel web-based tool that integrates the server-side capabilities for data analysis with the browse-based technology for data visualization. INVEX has two key features: (i) flexible differential expression analysis for a wide variety of experimental designs; and (ii) interactive visualization within the context of metadata and biological annotations. INVEX has built-in support for gene/metabolite annotation and a fully functional heatmap builder.
