Searching gene ontology

When you look at the annotation for a gene, you’ll spot that the various Gene Ontologies that a gene is tagged in are displayed:

 

Selecting one of these, allows you to search for the members of that Ontology term in your dataset with just a few clicks.  For example if we click “Tachykinin Receptor Signalling Pathway”, we are redirected to a screen where we can create a list of transcripts associated with that term by simply clicking “Create List”

After a database search, it confirms a list has been created, which can then be viewed/explored in the same manner as your gene name search:

In this example, we can see a list is created with 21 transcripts in it:

And just as before we can then heatmap it to see if this GO term is interesting in our dataset.
