Gene Ontology Term Finder Help


The GO Term Finder (Version 0.83) searches for significant shared GO terms, or parents of those GO terms, used to describe the genes in your list to help you discover what the genes may have in common. To map annotations of a group of genes to more general terms and/or to bin them in broad categories, use the GO Slim Mapper.

Default Settings:
  1. All genes/features that have GO annotations in the database
  2. Manually curated and High-throughput annotation methods
  3. Hits with p-value < 0.01 will be displayed on the results page

Optional: Add a title for your search results

Step 1: Query Set (Your Input)
Enter Gene/ORF names:
(separated by a return or a space)
OR Upload a file of Gene/ORF names:
(.txt or .tab format)

Step 2: Choose Ontology and Set Cutoff

Search using default settings or use Step 3, Step 4, and/or Step 5 below to customize your options.

Optional Step 3: Specify your background set of genes using the options below
Use default background set
(all features in the database that have GO annotations)
OR Enter Gene/ORF names:
(separated by a return or a space)

OR Upload a file of Gene/ORF names:

Customize the gene list in the default or your specific background set (OPTIONAL)
Feature type
Default includes all feature types listed here
ORF blocked_reading_frame ncRNA_gene not in systematic sequence of S288C pseudogene rRNA_gene snRNA_gene snoRNA_gene tRNA_gene telomerase_RNA_gene transposable_element_gene
ORF Qualifier
Applicable to Feature type: ORF. Default includes all Qualifiers listed here.

Optional Step 4: Refine the Annotations used for calculation
You can use this option with Step 3. Default uses all the options listed here
Select by Annotation Method Manually curated: yes no
High-throughput: yes no
Select by Annotation Source SGD UniProt InterPro GO_Central GOC MGI HGNC CACAO
Select by Evidence Codes IC IDA IEP IGC IGI IMP IPI ISA ISM ISO ISS NAS ND RCA TAS

Optional Step 5: Select a p-value cutoff for results and/or toggle False Discovery Rate
The default settings display hits with p-value < 0.01
Select a different p-value cutoff below:
