Description:Gene Annotation Co-occurrence Discovery
Abstract:GENECODIS is a web-based tool that integrates different sources of information to search for annotations that frequently co-occur in a set of genes and rank them by statistical significance. The analysis of concurrent annotations provides significant information for the biologic interpretation of high-throughput experiments and may outperform the results of standard methods for the functional analysis of gene lists. GENECODIS can be used to determine biological annotations or combinations of annotations that are significantly associated to a list of genes under study with respect to a reference list. In addition to single annotations, this tool allows users to simultaneously evaluate annotations from different sources, for example Biological Process and Cellular Component categories of Gene Ontology.
