Hi -

A new Gene Ontology (GO) tool has been developed at the Saccharomyces
Genome Database (SGD) that helps users find the GO term that shared by a
group of genes.  This new tool, the GO Term Finder, looks for significant
GO terms that are shared among a list of genes.

The GO Term Finder can be found at:

The help document for the GO Term Finder can be found at:

The results are graphically displayed in order to view the GO terms in
context of the ontology.  This graphic display has also been incorporated
into the results of the previously released tool, the GO-Slim Term Mapper,
as well as the GO term pages at SGD.

For an overview of the GO tools and pages available at SGD, please refer
to the GO Tutorial:

As always, if you have any questions, suggestions, or comments on the
current GO annotations (or any other aspect of SGD), please don't hesitate
to contact us:
