Sleipnir 3.0 / COALESCE – Library for Computational Functional Genomics

Sleipnir 3.0 / COALESCE


Sleipnir is a C++ library enabling efficient analysis, integration, mining, and machine learning over genomic data. This includes a particular focus on microarrays, since they make up the bulk of available data for many organisms, but Sleipnir can also integrate a wide variety of other data types, from pairwise physical interactions to sequence similarity or shared transcription factor binding sites.


COALESCE (Combinatorial Algorithm for Expression and Sequence-based Cluster Extraction) can use large collections of genomic data and Bayesian integration to predict coregulated gene modules, the conditions of regulation, and the consensus binding motifs for regulation.
