Kvik

A framework for developing interactive data exploration applications in genomics and systems biology. It is a collection of packages in the Go programming language that help application developers i) interface with the R statistical programming language; ii) specify and run statistical analysis pipelines; and iii) interface with online databases such as MsigDB and KEGG. It also contains a Javascript package for visualizing KEGG pathways using d3.

Kvik is in continuous development.

Example Applications

Matched Interaction Across Tissues (MIxT)

MixT

Kvik Pathways

Example application

Name

The project is named after Fridtjof Nansen's lead slead dog Kvik on his Fram expedition to the North Pole 1893-1896.

History

The project started as a system for exploring KEGG pathway maps together with gene expression datasets from the Norwegian Women and Cancer (NOWAC). Over the course of the last two years the project has moved from being a specific application into a generic framework for building applications that interface with data analysis in R and online databases.
