GOrilla - a tool for identifying enriched GO terms


     Gene Ontology enRIchment anaLysis and visuaLizAtion  tool


GOrilla is a tool for identifying and visualizing enriched GO terms in ranked lists of genes.
It can be run in one of two modes:

  1. Searching for enriched GO terms that appear densely at the top of a ranked list of genes or
  2. Searching for enriched GO terms in a target list of genes compared to a background list of genes.
For further details see References.

Step 1: Choose organism

Step 2: Choose running mode

Single ranked list of genes       Two unranked lists of genes (target and background lists)   

Step 3: Paste a ranked list of gene/protein names     

Names should be separated by an <ENTER>. The preferred format is gene symbol. Other supported formats are: gene and protein RefSeq, Uniprot, Unigene and Ensembl. Use WebGestalt for conversion from other identifier formats.
