CSF Proteome Resource (CSF-PR) is an online repository of mass spectrometry based proteomics experiments on human cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The system includes novel approaches for filtering, visualizing and comparing quantitative proteomics information in an interactive and user-friendly environment.


DiVA-omics is a proof-of-concept web-based interactive visual analysis system for the analysis of quantitative omics datasets. It is straightforward to use and does not require any advanced bioinformatics skills.
