Welcome to Chipster

Chipster is a user-friendly analysis software for high-throughput data. It contains over 350 analysis tools for next generation sequencing (NGS), microarray, proteomics and sequence data. Users can save and share automatic analysis workflows, and visualize data interactively using a built-in genome browser and many other visualizations.

Chipster's client software uses Java Web Start to install itself automatically, and it connects to computing servers for the actual analysis. Chipster is open source and the server environment is available as a virtual machine image free of charge. If you would like to use Chipster running on CSC's server, you need a user account.
