GO question

Dear GO members,

I came accross the GO website and wanted to ask you guys a specific 

I have a small set of genes from humans (approx 200) and I retrieved 
biological processes and molecular functions for each one.  My question 
is, how or where do I go to compare the frequency (abundances) for each 
category within this group with that of the entire genome as a whole?  
For instance if in this set there are 20 out of 200 genes with a 
'transport' GO:0006810 biological process and I wanted to determine if 
this is unusually high fraction within my sample size as compared to 
the total fraction of 'transport' genes in the entire human genome 
where would I search for such information?

Thanks for the help,
