QBioDiff is a web-based tool for quantification and interpretation of biological difference of the regions of interest (ROIs) among multiple samples by adapted Shannon entropy. QBioDiff web server provides quantitative difference analysis tools including difference quantification, differential ROIs identification, result visualization and functional analysis, for the omics data profiled by high-throughput technologies such as microarrays and next-generation sequencing. In particular, standalone software is provided for pretreatment of next-generation sequencing data. The platform-free and species-free nature of QBioDiff makes it applicable to various QBioDiff. This approach is effective for the high-throughput identification of the functional regions involved in various biological progresses. The tools for integrated analysis and result visualization facilitate the interpretation of the biological mechanism hidden in high-throughput data.
Availability and implementation: The web server QBioDiff is available at the web site http://bioinfo.hrbmu.edu.cn/QBioDiff/
