[…] of genes and genomes (kegg, http://www.genome.jp/kegg/) pathway analysis and gene functional classification analysis (for top 3000 genes if data set is > 3000 genes) [62–65]. the web-tool david 6.8 (updated in may 2016) was used in contrast to homo sapiens background [66, 67] at ease 0.1. when fdr corrected p value was smaller than 0.05, the go annotation or kegg pathway […]

[…] of known cardiac marker genes. genes significantly upregulated in roi (log2 fold change >2; p-value<0.05) were retrieved from the dataset and used for go term enrichment analysis using the david functional annotation tool (huang et al., 2009b; huang et al., 2009a)., for in-situ hybridization (ish) tl wild-type embryos were fixed in 4% pfa-pbs overnight and dehydrated in methanol. ish […]

[…] described previously53. deseq2 was used for differential gene expression analysis of rna-seq read counts54. significantly differentially expressed genes based on fdr < 0.05 were uploaded to the database for annotation, visualization and integrated discovery (david) for functional annotation55 and gene ontology consortium (http://www.geneontology.org/) for analysis of enriched biological […]

[…] often used to extract biological meaning from such data. rna-seq specific analysis packages like goseq and seqgsea are available [29]. our use of the gene functional classification tool in the nih david package and our top 66 genes provided only one cluster of genes, and treating our paired samples as two independent groups further narrowed the gene list. as igsf9 is the only common gene […]

PMID: 29636777
DOI: 10.1155/2018/4509892

[…] genes for functional assays [14]. after selection of homo sapiens as the organism, interesting genes from the screen were entered into the genemania search bar, and the output was downloaded., david, a powerful tool for network biology, comprises an integrated biological knowledge base and analytic tools aimed at systematically extracting biological meaning from large lists of genes […]
