About Access Restrictions to Electronic Resources

Access and use of electronic resources made available by the Becker Medical Library are governed by license agreements between the School of Medicine and publishers or third parties. Several of the electronic resources carry some restriction on their use. Access may be restricted by user location, number of concurrent users, and/or password.

In short, most people experience access limitations based on the network to which their computer is connected. Below is a quick breakdown of what can be accessed from various networks.

Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA)

Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA) has a broad set of features that allow you to quickly understand and visualize your data. These features include Gene and Chem View, Human and Mouse Isoform View, Disease View, BioProfiler, Upstream Regulator Analysis, Downstream Effects Analysis, Causal Network Analysis, Canonical Pathways, MicroRNA Target Filter, Toxicity Lists and Toxicity Functions, Molecule Activity Predictor (MAP), Biomarker Filter, Path Designer, and more. In addition, IPA covers a wide range of applications and technologies including biomarker discovery, metabolomics, microRNA research, next generation sequencing data analysis, proteomics, toxicogenomics, and transcriptomics.

Analysis Match is also now available as an add-on to IPA. Analysis Match discovers other IPA Core Analyses with similar (or opposite) biological results as compared to yours, to help confirm your interpretation of the results or to provide unexpected insights into underlying shared biological mechanisms. Analysis Match matches your analysis against other analyses you have created (in your Project Manager) as well as thousands of other human and mouse expression analyses curated from public sources. This “analysis-to-analysis” matching is based on shared patterns of Canonical Pathways, Upstream Regulators, Causal Networks, and Diseases and Functions.

IPA and IPA + Analysis Match are available to the Washington University community for an annual license cost of $2,650 (IPA) or $3,120 (IPA + Analysis Match) per named user. The license year runs from November to November, and license costs can't be prorated.

To license IPA or IPA + Analysis Match through Becker Library, please complete the IPA Registration Form.
