Chipster user interface. Chipster's user interface consists of four panels: Datasets, analysis tools, workflow, and visualization. Data files are displayed in the Datasets view (top left) and in the Workflow view (bottom left). The latter displays the analysis results as boxes colored according to the category of the tool that produced them. It enables the user to keep track of the relationships of the result files and to save the analysis steps taken as an automatic, reusable workflow. The analysis tool panel (top right) displays Chipster's analysis tools grouped into categories such as normalization, preprocessing, statistics and pathway analysis for easy discovery. Once a tool has been selected, the user can view its short description, the manual page and the source code, and change parameters if necessary. The visualization panel (bottom right) offers different interactive visualizations according to the selected dataset. The user can select genes in the visualizations and create new datasets based on this selection.
