[…] to identify transcription factors and gene ontology annotation terms overrepresented for the genes in the k-means clusters. the analysis was carried out for each cluster separately using the enrichr online tool (http://amp.pharm.mssm.edu/enrichr/), which encompasses gene-set libraries based on a large number of annotation databases [25]. these databases contain information […]

Useful if you want an ultra-fast glimpse at the characteristics of a gene/protein list. However, it does not take regulatory direction, nor expression values into account. Some of the databases against which it compares are in need of updating. Also, I question the statistical validity of their scoring system. Nevertheless, while it should never be used as an endpoint for analyses, it is quite helpful in pointing you in directions for further inquiry and provides quick graphic summaries for easy presentation.
