IST Online during 2020

While we are always looking ahead and we look forward what 2021 brings for us, it is also nice to see what kind of results were achieved during 2020. And while we especially look at successful projects, product development, our new office and new website, we also always check if IST Online has been useful in research projects all over the world.

For those of you not familiar with IST Online, this is one of the largest fully integrated and annotated human gene expression data sources available in the world and available for free at A premium version, with some additional features, is also available.

This year we were again happy to see a very good number of publications appear during 2020 that benefited from the IST Online data and we would like to thank all the researchers for referring to IST in their publications. You can find the publications below.
