Chart of enriched GO terms in Excel xlsx format. We included charts for DAVID’s GOTERM_BP_FAT (lower levels of biological process ontology), GOTERM_BP_ALL (all levels of biological process ontology), GOTERM_BP_2 (2nd level of biological process ontology), GOTERM_BP_3 (3rd level of biological process ontology), GOTERM_BP_4 (4th level of biological process ontology), GOTERM_BP_5 (5th level of biological process ontology), GOTERM_CC_FAT (lower levels of cellular component ontology), GOTERM_MF_FAT (lower levels of molecular function ontology), and KEGG_PATHWAY with each as an individual tab in the file. We supplied the DAVID resources with a list of 2,074 genes annotated in the UMD 3.1 assembly.
