Partek Flow is a web-based software application designed specifically for the analysis of next-generation sequencing data with and easy-to-use graphical interface. With Partek Flow you can perform alignment, quantification, quality control, statistics, interactive visualization of data, and find the biological meaning of your data. You can build your own custom analyses pipelines or download pipelines built by Partek scientists.

A group license for Partek Flow is installed on the Center for High Performance Computing cluster and is available to the Washington University community.  The WUSTL Partek Flow Group License is a shared license, and includes toolkits for RNA-Seq, Microarray, ChIP-Seq, Metagenomics, and Single Cell data analyses.

Each lab can purchase a single user login account that can be shared by members of the lab at an annual cost of $2,000. The Partek Flow license year runs from February to February, with licenses renewing automatically. License costs cannot be prorated.
