Skin Science Foundation Bioinformatics Hub
To promote big data-driven skin science and next generation healthcare in Dermatology, the Skin Science Foundation (SSF) is proud to launch the “Skin Science Foundation Bioinformatics Hub”. This is a web platform giving open access to curated transcriptomic data from multiple inflammatory skin diseases.
The platform allows unprecedented means to compare expression of 20,000 single genes across multiple skin diseases and identify disease-specific signatures. This cross-comparative approach has the potential to discover unique disease biomarkers and classifiers and to provide new insights into disease pathogenesis.
