GeneFuncster: A Web Tool for Gene Functional Enrichment Analysis and Visualisation
Many freely available tools exist for analysing functional enrichment among short filtered or long unfiltered gene lists. These analyses are typically performed against either Gene Ontologies (GO) or KEGG pathways (Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes) database. The functionality to carry out these various analyses is currently scattered in different tools, many of which are also often very limited regarding result visualization. GeneFuncster is a tool that can analyse the functional enrichment in both the short filtered gene lists and full unfiltered gene lists towards both GO and KEGG and provide a comprehensive result visualisation for both databases. GeneFuncster is a simple to use publicly available web tool accessible at http://bioinfo.utu.fi/GeneFuncster .
