PMID: 28557017
DOI: 10.1111/mmi.13719

[…] was ≤ 0.05 (false‐discovery rate of 5%). differentially expressed genes (degs) were grouped by biological function according to their designated gene ontology (go) terms obtained from the embl‐ebi quickgo database (https://www.ebi.ac.uk/quickgo/). bar charts summarizing the data were generated in graphpad prism version 5.0 (san diego, ca, usa) and heatmaps of gene expression patterns […]

[…] of conserved signalling pathways as well as key developmental genes. a list of d. melanogaster genes from flybase according to the signalling pathways and developmental processes as assigned by quickgo (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/quickgo/, assessed february 2016) was used as a query to identify homologous sequences in the i. elegans transcriptome. the developmental pathways included embryonic […]

[…] of the identified proteins was based on gene ontology molecular function, biological process, and cellular component information available from the uniprotkb database (http://www.uniprot.org/) and quickgo (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/quickgo/)., we used signalp 4.1 server to predict the presence and location of signal peptide cleavage sites in amino acid sequences in identified proteins of h.

[…] genes were screened for the corresponding identifiers, the identifiers were assigned to higher level go-terms, and genes were sorted into groups of molecular function and biological process using quickgo [, ]. in gene subsets of particular importance (e.g., 50 most abundant transcripts per cell type), we re-checked the contained gene products without annotation by using the blastp algorithm […]

[…] peptide and protein levels., to better understand the biological functions of the identified proteins, go annotation was performed based on blast results using the toxodb (http://toxodb.org/toxo/), quickgo (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/quickgo) and david v. 6.7 (http://david.abcc.ncifcrf.gov) databases [–]., to further verify the cags components present in the serum, coronin protein (tgcor) […]

[…] relationships between classes including classification (is a) and partonomy (part of). this graph structure is commonly used to group genes annotated with related terms in user-facing tools such as quickgo [] and amigo [] and to generate gene sets for enrichment (over- representation) analyses [] to interpret the results of genomics experiments. for example, an experiment to assess […]

[…] of the collective functional categories is the next desirable step. here, various options are available—with potential for deployment in the galaxy platform. for single go terms of interest, the quickgo browser [] enables the user to view the full term definition, as well as to browse closely related terms. for large lists of go terms, the ‘reduce and visualize gene ontology’ (revigo) tool […]
