Dear Dr. Pandey,

Thank you for contacting the GO Consortium.

The AmiGO browser includes a tool, Term Enrichment, that you can use to 
analyze a list of gene products and look for term enrichment or clustering 
of annotation:

You must input a set of gene product identifiers -- UniProt or model 
organism database accessions -- for your query set and either (1) upload a 
set of gene product identifiers for your background/population set or (2) 
select a database filter to set your background annotation set for 
comparison. Should you choose this option, please let us know if you have 
any problems or further questions.

There are also a number of tools developed outside the GO Consortium, that 
you may be able to use to analyze your microarray results. We list these 
tools on the GO Tools web page:

You will probably be most interested in the microarray/proteomic tools 

Of the many tools available, we have actually used only a few; some that 
have worked well for us are:

   Onto-Tools suite -
   g:profiler -
   FatiGO  -

Please note that because all of these tools are developed outside the GO 
Consortium, you should contact the tool developers directly for
