Welcome to agriGO -- GO Analysis Toolkit and Database for Agricultural Community
The agriGO is a web-based tool and database for the gene ontology analysis. It supports specicial focus on agricultural species and is user-friendly.
The agriGO is designed to provide deep support to agricultural community in the realm of ontology analysis. Compared to other available GO analysis tools, unique advantages and features of agriGO are:
1. The agriGO especially focuses on agricultural species. It supports 45 species and 292 datatypes currently. And agriGO is designed as an user-friendly web server.
2. New tools including PAGE (Parametric Analysis of Gene set Enrichment), BLAST4ID (Transfer IDs by BLAST) and SEACOMPARE (Cross comparison of SEA) were developed. The arrival of these tools provides users with possibilities for data mining and systematic result exploration and will allow better data analysis and interpretation.
3. The exploratory capability and result visualization are enhanced. Results are provided in different formats: HTML tables, tabulated text files, hierarchical tree graphs, and flash bar graphs.
4. In agriGO, PAGE and SEACOMPARE can be used to carry out cross-comparisons of results derived from different data sets, which is very important when studying multiple groups of experiments, such as in time-course research.
