Introduction to Cohorts

ICA Cohorts is a cohort analysis tool integrated with Illumina Connected Analytics (ICA). ICA Cohorts combines subject- and sample-level metadata, such as phenotypes, diseases, demographics, and biometrics, with molecular data stored in ICA to perform tertiary analyses on selected subsets of individuals.

Features At-a-glance

  • Intuitive UI for selecting subjects and samples to analyze and compare: deep phenotypical and clinical metadata, molecular features including germline, somatic, gene expression.

  • Comprehensive, harmonized data model exposed to ICA Base and ICA Bench users for custom analyses.

  • Run analyses in ICA Base and ICA Bench and upload final results back into Cohorts for visualization.

  • Out-of-the-box statistical analyses including genetic burden tests, GWAS/PheWAS.

  • Rich public data sets covering key disease areas to enrich private data analysis.

  • Easy-to-use visualizations for gene prioritization and genetic variation inspection.



Public Data Sets

ICA Cohorts contains a variety of freely available data sets covering different disease areas and sequencing technologies. For a list of currently available data, see here.
