Gene Ontology (GO) annotations have become a major tool for analysis of genome-scale experiments. We have created OntologyTraverser--an R package for GO analysis of gene lists. Our system is a major advance over previous work because (1) the system can be installed as an R package, (2) the system uses Java to instantiate the GO structure and the SJava system to integrate R and Java and (3) the system is also deployed as a publicly available web tool.
Availability: Our software is academically available through http://franklin.imgen.bcm.tmc.edu/OntologyTraverser/. Both the R package and the web tool are accessible.
