Gitools 1.8 for improved data managament and transfer

We have started to distribute Gitools in the version 1.8.x. This latest version include important new features in terms of communication of Gitools with other tools (i.e. IGV, GenomeSpace, GSEA, excel). Now the user will get more flexibility for loading data in Gitools. These are the most important improvements in that aspect:

  • Send matrices from IGV (Integrative Genomics Viewer) directly to Gitools
  • Load matrices from GenomeSpace
  • .GCT file support for matrix files (format used by GSEA).
  • Import matrices from Excel data sheets
