Gene Bot Discover knowledge about genes and proteins directly in Slack

Recently, many biomedical research teams have moved to working and collaborating remotely, and consequently, online platforms that enable team communication, such as Slack, have become increasingly popular. While many biomedical researchers use Slack for their day-to-day work, there are currently no applications geared towards this field available on the Slack application directory. In order to bridge this gap, we created GeneBot, a Slack application for discovering knowledge about human genes directly within Slack. GeneBot functions include:
– Listening to channel communication or slash commands to trigger the posting of information about single human genes
– Listening to channel communication or slash commands to trigger the posting of information about gene sets, which are analyzed via enrichment analysis or connected into networks based on their known protein-protein interactions and co-expression correlations
– Serving as an education tool through a quiz that facilitates users to learn gene namesOverall, GeneBot is a Slack application that enables Slack users to perform gene centered analyses directly within Slack. Check out more info about our app: https://maayanlab.github.io/GeneBot/
