Pie Chart view of Gene Ontology percentages

Hi Nathan,

Regarding the web-enabled GO slim concept that Jane mentioned, the 
group here at Princeton (primarily Linda McMahan) crafted a webtool 
version of map2slim (Chris Mungall), that allows uploaded genelists 
with a chosen slim-file from the GO consortium site.  It doesn't export 
pie-chart currently, but the data it produces may be helpful to you.

Hope this helps you out,

John Matese
