[…] dj) < 0.05, and then genes with positive log2_fc were determined as up-regulated, and genes with negative values were determined as down-regulated. go term enrichment analysis were performed using agrigo with default settings [42]., statistical methods were used as previously reported: we used k-means clustering as the clustering method to classify genes based on nucleosome patterns across the […]

[…] proost et al., 2015) annotation data were used to annotate mapped sequences. gene ontology enrichment analysis was carried out using singular enrichment analysis (sea) available through agrigo toolkit ( customized analysis was performed using hypergeometric statistical test, at significance level of p = 0.01 and minimum mapping entries […]

[…] levels compared to dmso control values, which was in turn log2-transformed and computed for spearman correlation coefficients between samples. gene ontology analysis was performed using the online “agrigo” tool (, and a heat map was created using the r “pheatmap” package., one-week-old col-0 plants grown on half-strength ms agar media were transferred […]

[…] expressed genes showing significant enrichment in response to control and induced treatments and comparisons were analysed using tair (, agrigo (du et al., 2010), genesis (sturn et al., 2002) and kegg databases., quantitative real‐time pcr (qrt‐pcr) was performed on cdna obtained from one of the biological replicates belonging […]

It gives better annotations for plants that PANTHER. For example Panther will asign arabidopsis proteins labels like "alzhimers related protein" while AgriGo won't.
