FungiFun: a web-based application for functional categorization of fungal genes and proteins

Fungal Genet Biol. 2011 Apr;48(4):353-8. doi: 10.1016/j.fgb.2010.11.001. Epub 2010 Nov 10.


FungiFun assigns functional annotations to fungal genes or proteins and performs gene set enrichment analysis. Based on three different classification methods (FunCat, GO and KEGG), FungiFun categorizes genes and proteins for several fungal species on different levels of annotation detail. It is web-based and accessible to users without any programming skills. FungiFun is the first tool offering gene set enrichment analysis including the FunCat categorization. Two biological datasets for Aspergillus fumigatus and Candida albicans were analyzed using FungiFun, providing an overview of the usage and functions of the tool. FungiFun is freely accessible at
