Ingenuity IPA Software – 2021 Important Update
*Updated March 1, 2021
**Access will begin starting April 1, 2021
We are pleased to announce the that GSI will be renewing our license with Qiagen for Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA) for the upcoming year. As part of the renewal, we have upgraded our license to include IPA Analysis Match which will allow users to not only quickly visualize and understand complex ‘omics data, but will also allow users to place these results within the context of biological systems. Over the course of the past year we have been working closely with Qiagen to ensure a seamless transition to our new license as well as improved accessibility for the GSI community. If you are interested in IPA Analysis Match for your research please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details on both trial and full access site licenses.
IPA trial License: Trial license allows free access to IPA Analysis Match for 2-weeks. This allows users the opportunity to explore IPA on a limited basis to determine whether the platform meets their research needs. This license can then be expanded to a full site license, see below.
Full Site License: for access to the full site license we require an $800 buy-in from a sponsoring PI. The sponsoring PI will then be allowed to provide access to a maximum of 6 trainees. Each trainee will use their own login credentials to access IPA Analysis Match. Each BU email account allows installation on up to 3 devices.
Once we have received payment from a sponsoring PI, email addresses will be added to the Qiagen ITA list and the Software Scheduler
1. Our site license allows a single user at a time. Much like other core services you will need to book time ‘on’ IPA using a scheduler. Please be diligent about your usage or it will negatively impact everyone.
2. We are asking that each user sign-up on the Scheduler above using their name and email address. Please book analysis for an entire day (i.e. instead of a block of two hours, please book the whole day). This will ensure you can complete your analysis while avoiding running into someone else’s time.
3. Users MUST Log out after their allotted time is up. Given that our site license allows a single user access at a time, failure to log-out will block access to any other user! If there is a lock-out, users can use the Google Calendar to identify the individual and contact them directly for support. In the event of a lock-out please contact us at GSI@bu.edu to report the offense.
4. Every 2 months, GSI will do an audit on individuals accessing IPA and any reported offenses. Offenders will be given a warning and Sponsoring PI will benotified. If there are repeated offenses, the offending individual will be banned and account on IPA revoked.
QIAGEN Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA) New User trainings are available during the first and third Tuesday and Wednesday of every month. Registration can be found here.
