The GO website lists >50 tools for doing GO-based analyses but these are not well integrated. AmiGO/GOOSE offers some functionality such as slimming, enrichment, data extraction but these are difficult to chain together. A simple integrated environment in which tools could be linked in workflows would be beneficial to the community.

The GO Galaxy instance is an environment to do all your analyses in one place

  • term enrichment
  • format conversion (e.g. obo to owl)
  • annotation file munging (e.g. mapping to slim)


We maintain the GO/OBO galaxy tool configurations and helper scripts as a fork off of the main galaxy-dist repo in bitbucket.

Installing locally

1. install mercurial
2. Type:
  hg clone
3. Follow the instructions in README-galaxy-obo.txt
  more README-galaxy-obo.txt

Term Enrichment Format

See Is there a standard format for TE results?

  • TERF project on googlecode
