New tool: GO-Elite
16 Aug 2012
Alexander Zambon (UC San Diego) and colleagues, including NBIC Faculty member Chris Evelo, have developed a new tool to perform over-representation analysis on structured ontology annotations, pathway databases or biological IDs. Numerous over-representation tools are already available, but many of these are limited in scope, lack interchangeability or quickly become outdated because they are linked to only one resource. GO-Elite provides users with a flexible pathway analysis tool that uses the relationships between pathways, ontology species and gene ID systems to generate a minimally non-redundant set of results. Results from GO-Elite can be visualized on WikiPathways or as networks. GO-Elite is available as a web interface, GenMAPP-CS plugin and cross-platform application.
