Dear Emily,

Please simply go to ,  paste in the
very same list and hit g:Profile! The needed answer and many more
pops up soon. According to GO this is represents almost the entire
Notch signalling pathway.

Not only do you get the enrichment results but also a gene by
gene detailed yet general overview of what is known about those
genes (e.g. the evidence codes!). Hoovering long enough over the image, 
you get access to many more features like fetching of all annotations 
for any of those genes/proteins, or fetching all those from your query 
that belonged to certain category. KEGG, Reactome, TRANSFAC regulatory 
motifs, etc come up as another bonus.

At training you may also benefit a lot from the g:Convert and g:Orth 
links that allow you to convert between ID types, and find orthologs, 

The load we have not really stress-tested yet. But it should be ok.
Calculation speeds you can test using textual output option. This is
helpful also in case of slower Internet connection, or extremely large 
queries. Current machine is not specially dedicated server (i.e.
our group runs other tools and calculations sometimes). It is a rather 
regular 4x2 core AMD server Linux box. When is the course?

(and please send feedback via the form behind the Contact link)


Ps. To send a colleague the link to exactly the same calculations, you 
can click on "Static URL". For your query it is
