Welcome to Chipster

Chipster is a user-friendly software for analyzing high-throughput data such as NGS and microarrays. It contains over 450 analysis tools and a large collection of reference genomes. Users can save and share automatic analysis workflows, and visualize data interactively using for example the built-in genome browser. 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.
